Yass and District Museum

** Currently Closed until 20 October 2018**

From its formation in 1961, the Society have been actively collecting objects of historical interest related to Yass and district. The museum was officially opened in its present location in December 1988 after extensive refurbishments were made to a former garage over a period of five years.

The Yass and District Museum features a special exhibition of '50 Years - 50 Treasures'. The collection is varied to say the least: everything from a Koerts wool press to a tiny trouser button stamped 'Bracken', used by a local tailor, who personalised his garments with custom-made buttons. Wedding finery, local cordial bottles and exercise equipment contrast with a coin and badge collection, a collection of trophies for champion merino sheep and a miniature farm. There is plenty to see!

The museum is conveniently located just two doors from the Yass Visitors Centre and adjoining Coronation Park with its playground and toilet facilities.
