The Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum is open on weekends and public holidays. We will be open from 10:00am. If visitation is very light then we will close at 1:00pm. If we have visitors then we stay open until 3:00pm. A 2 hour visit is recommended.

If you are feeling unwell, please do not enter the building, any visitors exhibiting signs of illness may be asked to leave by the Wollondilly Heritage Centre staff.

The Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum is a repository for archives, records and objects relating to the early development of the villages in Wollondilly Shire. Exhibitions on display incorporate these objects and include the stories of our early pioneers and how they shaped life in our local area.

Included in the collection are extensive photographic records, family history and local history, specialised collections such as Burragorang, Yerranderie and Coal Mining and indigenous history of the Gundungurra people.

The Oaks Historical Society trained volunteers provide visitors with a unique insight into Wollondilly’s local history.

The Museum welcomes group visits, tour groups and school groups, however we do request you book in advance. School groups can be organised on Thursdays during school terms, other groups any day by arrangement.
