The main building was opened in 1970 by Sir Rohan Delacombe. 
The local granite foundation stone, donated by Athol Kelly, was
unveiled by Mr Gordon McKay MM.

The main building houses household memorabilia and hotographs, 
some family histories and records which are available for research.   
                                                               
The annexe has displays of demi-johns and bottles, buckles, farm tools, and electrical equipment. The relocated RSL hall houses war memorabilia including photographs and Honour Boards from Pyramid Hill and surrounding districts.

Today's news is tomorrow's history and our volunteers are committed to the preservation of the collections and encourages both local folk and visitors to catch a glimpse of the early life of Pyramid Hill and district.

Loddon Discovery Tours representatives regularly bring their tourist buses to our museum for a browse and morning tea or lunch, with many visitors returning for a second or third time.

We have been awarded Best Museum in the Loddon Shire on several occasions.

 

OPENING TIMES:
The museum is open to the public on Tuesdays from 10am to 3pm and on the first Sunday of each month from 2pm to 4pm,  all other times
are by appointment.
