Cairns Museum

Cairns Museum

Museum in Cairns, QLD

The Cairns Museum has stories to tell about life in a tropical climate: the hot and humid build-up to the wet season, cyclones, floods and lightning and the magic weather of the dry season. Stories of beautiful creatures, unique diseases, scary predators, rainforests (you might call them ‘jungles’), the Great Barrier Reef, sugar cane and bananas. Of White Australia, Aboriginal resistance and European isolation. Of backpackers, hippies and tourists.

The Cairns Museum is founded on the Cairns Historical Society’s amazing collection of objects, photographs and archival records. This collection holds the secrets and memories of the people, places, events and changing environment of Cairns and Far North Queensland. The Cairns Museum is supported by local volunteers and sponsors.

The Cairns Museum is currently closed for a major renovation. It will re-open in mid-2017 in the School of Arts Building in the heart of the city. We look forward to meeting you then! In the meantime, our team of curators and designers are working hard to bring to life the stories of Cairns as a tropical city. The renewal of the Cairns Museum is proudly supported by Cairns Regional Council.
