At Tweed Regional Museum learn about the rich natural and cultural history of the Tweed, discover colourful characters and their stories and be surprised by exhibitions that reflect the people who call the Tweed Shire home.

The Murwillumbah branch of the Museum is housed within the original 1915 Shire Hall, and a contemporary extension which opened in 2014.

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.

The permanent displays have recently been refurbished and provide a glimpse into past settlement and development of the Shire. Changing displays showcase the Tweed Regional Museum collection, along with contemporary stories about places, events and people significant to the Tweed community.

Local residents and visitors to the region are encouraged to come along and learn about the magnificent Tweed Shire and majestic caldera.
