Morpeth Museum

The Museum reflects the diversity and history of the local area through a collection of memorabilia, artefacts, slide shows and interpretive texts.

Visitor packages are available for group bookings, including talks, heritage walks and/or morning tea etc. Local family histories are onsite and visitors can research their local roots. School groups are also welcome.
