Directions to Furneaux Museum

The Furneaux Museum on Flinders Island is managed and cared for entirely by the volunteer members of the Furneaux Historical Research Association. It showcases the cultural and natural history of the indigenous people of the area.

The museum is a cluster of seven buildings which are themselves exhibits. Included is the one time private school and residence of the first government subsidised teacher on Flinders Island; 'Dryazell' which is still set on its original site and was the first Museum building. Another building is the replica of a Mutton-bird processing shed as used 1920-1948. There are also a Nissen Hut and Works Office building from the post-World War II War Service Land Settlement Scheme. The biggest and most recent building is the main exhibition building which houses an office reception area and a large space for special exhibitions. The exhibition topic changes six monthly
