Mooroopna and District Museum

The Mooroopna and District display contains family histories, sports teams, photographs and early household items often seen in similar museums.

But this display also commemorates James Callaghan (rifle shooting) and Jack Findlay (750cc motorcycle racing), sportsmen reaching national status.

Major industries (eg Ardmona Foods, E.D.Parsons Engineering, Ridley Agriproducts) and institutions (schools, churches, sporting facilities) form part of our collection. Our museum has several unique objects, such as the only copies of the local newspaper The Toolamba Telegraph and a lithograph of the first subdivision of land, both produced in 1874.

Our ex-servicemen and women and other notable achievers are remembered. Artefacts from early Mooroopna, farm implements, medallions and photographs are on display.
