Museum Future

The Ulverstone History Museum is set to become the place to tell the many migration stories from around Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Migration Experience will tell the stories of migration to our state and the impact the immigrants had on the history of Tasmania and the North West coast in particular.

The museum is run by local volunteers with an interest in the history of the Central Coast area.
We help collect, preserve and display artefacts, photographs and information that represent the past endeavours of old families and new settlers alike — from the momentous to the everyday.

We are also the first point of contact for visitors keen to understand more about the museum and the people, places and objects that tie us to our past. It is our task to talk with school groups, residents, tourist and history buffs, to answer their questions and to help interpret our collection from the perspective of a 'local'.
That's where the stories begin!

We love what we do. We are always seeking to learn more about our history and ways to make the museum a more interesting, friendly and informative place to visit.

The museum will slowly change over the next few years to accommodate all the new and local stories.
