Logan Village Museum

Logan Village

Home to thousands of artefacts, the Logan Village Museum is a must-visit destination for all history buffs, and well worth the drive south to this charming semi-rural region.  

Located in the grounds of the Logan Village Green, the museum is housed across four buildings – most of which have a rich history of their own. The eclectic range of items on display date back to as early as 1790, with many boasting local, state, national and even international significance.

Here you’ll find everything from cameras, saddles, sewing machines, cash registers, farm machinery, books, artworks, bottles, phones, shoes, lanterns, photos, family histories, a petrol pump, and even an old dunny door.

There’s a comprehensive war collection which includes a record of all the ANZACs to have come from the region, as well as helmets, uniforms and even some WWI medals. Many items have been unearthed from the nearby Camp Cable WWII US training base, such as pen knives, badges, coins and rings. Make sure you ask the guides about Camp Cable to hear some fascinating insights into WWII army life.

The main house building is also a highlight – showcasing a fantastic range of household items (think clothes, kitchen goods, children’s toys and musical instruments), and providing a real insight into how people lived hundreds of years ago.

Run entirely by volunteers, these tireless workers are overflowing with knowledge and are only too happy to talk visitors through the extensive collection.

Need to know – Entry cost is $2 per person to cover administration costs. Museum is open seven days from 9am-12pm, or other times via special arrangement.

Nice to know – Free parking is available, and the site is mostly wheelchair accessible.
