Welcome to the Ration Shed Museum

Sandra Morgan, Cherbourg ChairpersonHello, I’m Sandra Morgan, chairperson of the Ration Shed Museum. I was raised in Cherbourg and have lived here all my life and I’m passionate about preserving our history.

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 have a great 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. Come and visit us and share our dream. I look forward to meeting you,

Sandra
