Katherine Museum

Katherine Museum

Museum in Katherine, NT.

The Katherine Museum collects and preserves the region’s cultural heritage and artefacts. The Katherine Museum works with the tourism industries in the development of the Museums precinct and visitation areas.

The Museum aims to encourage Katherine’s community to participate in the museum’s life by bringing their families and friends to experience the diverse history the museum aims to show. We encourage the community to come to our events and functions to support the Museum and the local history.  Each year we hold a community event for families as a thank you for their support and contributions to the museum. As an institution, we aim to follow conservation, preservation and presentation guidelines set by Museums Australia.

The Katherine Museum has a wide range of collections that have mostly been donated from 1972 to present day. A full assessment of collections was undertaken in 2007/2008. From this assessment the Overland Telegraph Display was created bringing all telecommunication objects and documents to be displayed together as a complete collection.

Regular care of our collections is vital for our collections keeping and with the initiation of a new Museum there will be present, a resource room, archive facility and temperature controlled collection keeping area.

Katherine is a pretty young town, and new collections are always welcome for donation. We aim to showcase local historical heritage that will aid to the knowledge of future generations about our community.
