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.
