Tweed Regional Museum
In all that we do we aim to collect and share the stories of our community. They create connections, inspire wonder and provide unique experiences in unexpected places.
Their beautiful Museum - a mix of heritage architecture and contemporary interpretations - is home to extraordinary cultural experiences with a year-round program of innovative exhibitions, exciting events, engaging programs and learning experiences.
Land | Life | Culture is a permanent, interactive exhibition which shares unique cultural, biological and geological stories that shape life in the Tweed, stories of places, of people and of the land. Land | Life | Culture features stunning graphics of the Tweed's most significant landscapes, specimens, children's interactive area, and cultural stories told by local Aboriginal community members.
A vibrant program of changing exhibitions showcases the Tweed Regional Museum collection, along with contemporary stories about places, events and people significant to the Tweed community.
