The Cairns Museum

Temporary closure of the Cairns Museum.

The Cairns Museum is currently closed, to enable a major refurbishment of the Heritage-listed School of Arts Building. The project will include new space for the museum and is funded by the Cairns Regional Council.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Cairns Museum 'History on the Move' trailer and School Kits are available. Visit our schools page for details (there is a link in main menu at left)

The Cairns Historical Society has moved to into temporary premises in the former Post Office building at 13 Grafton Street (opposite the Convention Centre). The Research Centre is now open M-F 10am-3pm and researchers are welcome.

We will update this site as the School of Arts redevelopment progresses and provide plenty of notice about the reopening of the museum in 2016. Alternatively you can follow the Cairns Historical Society on Facebook for updates (there is a link at the bottom of this page)

This is a wonderful chance to review and refresh our museum and we look forward to sharing it with you in 2016.
