Tatura Museum offers the opportunity to explore the history of Tatura and District including the history of irrigation in the Goulburn Valley and the unique history of the seven internment and POW camps in the area in WWII.
Tatura Museum houses a unique collection based on 3 main themes which are: the History of Irrigation in Victoria's Goulburn Valley, the Local and Family History of Tatura and District since white settlement and the history of the seven World War 2 Prisoner of War and Internment Camps and the Garrison and Hospital which were established in this area.
Tatura Museum is not the average small town museum. Our collection includes ONLY items which have a connection to Tatura. Whether it is Local, Family, Irrigation or War Time Camps history every article on display has a direct connection with Tatura and is not just part of a general historical display.
The collection and our reference library are a valuable source of research material for academics, school children, relatives and former residents.
Open from 1.00pm - 3.00pm every day with the exception of Good Friday and Christmas Day.
