About the Port MaCquarie Museum

Our award winning Museum tells the stories of those who have come before us and what makes our town special, from our beginnings as a British penal settlement through to the popular tourist and sea-change destination we are today. We have been sharing Port Macquarie's stories since 1957.


  • Allow plenty of time for your visit as our museum is much larger than it looks. There are over 2,000 objects on display at any time.
  • Comprising 14 rooms and galleries, most visitors are pleasantly surprised once they step inside. We recommend you allow at least an hour for your visit.
  • Exhibits are regularly updated so that we can share more of our over 20,000 items collection with you. If you have visited before, you might like to visit again!
