Description

Claremont Museum's main exhibitions are housed in a preserved nineteenth century schoolhouse. The schoolroom provides a glimpse into the colonial education system, c1862. Behind the teacher's room where we present changing exhibitions, the washhouse contains the original copper, a mangle and other traditional domestic equipment. Text panels throughout the museum provide insight into the settlement of the region and traditional practices of past eras.

A scale model displays Freshwater Bay in 1862. A display of early Claremont shops includes the barber, cobbler, draper and a 1940s corner store. Special exhibitions are changed periodically and address a variety of topics in history, science and the arts.
