EXHIBITIONS AND TOURS
Our museum and archives facility is located in a beautiful 1850's bluestone, courthouse building. This provides a wonderful, historic environment in which to display both our permanent and temporary exhibitions to local, national and international visitors.
Opening times and fees are detailed on our website.
Guided tours of the museum are available for both tourist and school groups. Groups may contact us by phone or email to make suitable arrangements.
Historic Walks and Bus Tours can also be arranged and are conducted by members of our society.
For bookings, please contact the Port Fairy and District Visitor information Centre - Phone 03 5568 2682.
Although private research of our archives is not possible, family, business and other historic research can be undertaken for you. The society holds extensive archives for this purpose and our volunteer archivists are experienced in this field.
