Hawkesbury Regional Museum is located in one of the country's oldest settlements - the third on mainland Australia after Sydney and Parramatta. It is the only publicly-run, professionally staffed museum in the Hawkesbury and, indeed, in the wider area including the Blue Mountains, Penrith, Hills and Blacktown local government areas. The Museum also provides visitor information and services.
This is an award-winning purpose built museum, designed to provide optimal conditions for the display of objects and the comfort and convenience of visitors. Also on site is Howe House, an historic house that has been fitted out with furnishings and displays that reflect its many uses over more than 200 years of history. The house is open for inspection at 11am and 2pm on weekends, and during the week for booked groups.
