On account of the coronavirus pandemic, the committee of Heidelberg Historical Society has decided to shut down the museum and its associated activities until further notice. As a result, the museum and Busy Bee Quilt exhibition will not open on Sundays, and volunteer activity at the museum during the week has been discontinued.
The Bus Trip scheduled for April has been deferred, and the April 14 meeting at Seddon Street Uniting Church has been cancelled.
If you need to contact the Society, please do so by email (email@example.com) because no-one is attending the museum to collect telephone messages. If you have a research enquiry, we will do our best to provide information via email.
Access to the Members Page is available through our website. You can browse our collection of thumbnail maps and images, read our scanned material from the General Information files and explore all 317 editions of the Heidelberg Historian.
If you are not already a member, click the ‘Join Here’ button on the webpage and follow the instructions.
We look forward to re-establishing our activities as soon as it is safe to do so.
