We use the Ration Shed as a space to tell our stories and we would like visitors to see and experience what life was like for our people living under the Aboriginal Protection Act during the first half of the 20th century, as well as show them the many wonderful aspects of Aboriginal culture and contemporary Cherbourg life.
We know 2018 is going to be a good year. We are in the process of renovating some of our 5 historic buildings. We are carefully renovating to honour our history and culture. Please be patient with us as we go through this revitalisation process. Some historic buildings and displays are still accessible but others are off limits. Please keep visiting us – we need your support and can’t wait to show you the new exhibitions and displays and our more user friendly and renovated buildings. We envisage everything being completed towards the end of March 2018 but will keep you posted.
We have a vibrant education program in place for schools and visitors. View our Education page to explore what we have to offer. We hope this site will encourage you to come and visit us at the Ration Shed Museum. We are always on the look out for support and feedback.
Our opening hours are from 9am-4pm – Monday until Thursday. Friday 9am- 1pm. Bookings for weekends can only be made for large groups and will incur a extra fee.
Come and visit us and share our dream. I look forward to meeting you,
