Lismore Historical Society and Museum

The award-winning Richmond River Historical Society Museum has one of the best historical collections in regional Australia. The museum is located in the heritage-listed former Lismore Municipal Building, with the main exhibition displayed within the old Council Chamber. Panels of local rainforest timbers line the walls of the museum.

Exhibitions about local Aboriginal culture, European settlement, industry and shipping showcase the region’s rich history. Artefacts used by Aboriginal families and early timber getters are displayed, along with domestic utensils that reveal the challenges of daily life for pioneering families. The museum is volunteer-run and contains a Research Centre with extensive archives and resources.
