The Heidelberg Historical Society Museum is now open on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm

Truth, Beauty & Utility Exhibition now open

This exhibition traces the Arts & Crafts Movement, from the sudden craze for Japanese-inspired decoration in the 1880s to the non-historical ‘Art Nouveau’ of 1900, to the rugged Californian bungalow of 1920—all as seen in our local area.

‘Truth, Beauty & Utility’ is now open at the Museum and can be viewed on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Please note that for the remainder of 2021 the Research Room will not be open on Sundays due to density requirements. The Museum will be closed during December 2021 and January 2022.

Re-opening yet again!

Posted on Thursday, 25th February 2021 by Janine Rizzetti

After our quick little lockdown in February, we are now open again on Sundays between 2.00 and 5.00 p.m.

Have you seen our Heidelberg Busy Bee Quilt Exhibition yet? Remember that if you are a member, you are entitled to free entry on Sundays to the museum and research room as often as you like! If you are not a member, entry is $5.00.

However, because of COVID restrictions, the numbers in the research room in particular are limited. We need to keep a watch to make sure that we don’t exceed the density, so it is important that all visitors (including members) enter through the front door after 2.00 p.m. where you will need to sign in. Walk-ins are welcome, but visitors and members who have made a booking will have precedence. So if you have a particular reason for wanting to access the research room, send us an email to make a booking. We will email you to confirm your booking before you come.

Because the courtroom is so much bigger, we are not likely to exceed density- so why not come along to see our exhibition- and bring a friend!
