Lord Howe Island Museum and Visitor Centre
Lord Howe Island has a new architect-designed Museum that was opened in 2002. The museum has a range of innovative displays on the island's World Heritage environment, community and history going back to 1788.
There is also a learning and scientific centre holding valuable archives, photographs and records, many of which have been digitised and can be browsed on their public computers. The museum library contains the largest collection of Lord Howe Island books, maps and journals in the world, and can be viewed by appointment with the Curator.
Weekly lectures are available for the visiting public; and scientists often present their research projects at special lectures.
The museum shop provides you with all the maps and guide books you will need for your visit, plus a host of local art, photographs and souvenirs.
Within the museum, the Coral Café produces coffee and lunches every day; and evening meals several days of the week. The museum has a public wifi network for visitors.
