Mudgee Historical Society Inc

The Mudgee Historical Society Inc collects and displays items and documents pertaining to the history and culture of the Mudgee district, promotes its history, and provides a family history research service from its extensive archives.

The Mudgee Historical Society was founded in 1964, and operated in rooms in part of the former Post Office Hotel on the south-eastern corner of Market and Perry Streets, Mudgee. In 1966 the former West End Hotel premises in Mudgee West were acquired as the Society’s museum and headquarters. Since then the site has been expanded and additional buildings have been constructed and re-located to the site to house the Society’s extensive collection of Australiana, all locally sourced.

The management committee of the Mudgee Historical Society Inc meets at the Museum on the third Tuesday of each month, with the exception of December at 9am, members are welcome to attend. Working bees are held at the Museum each Tuesday morning from 9.00am. New members are most welcome. The Annual General Meeting is held in August; annual membership fees are due in July. Individual membership is $15 and a family membership is $30; a quarterly bulletin, The Muse, is dispatched to all members.
