The award-winning Lismore Museum has one of the best historical collections in regional Australia. The all-volunteer museum is managed by the Richmond River Historical Society, which since 1936 has collected, preserved, displayed and disseminated the fascinating history of this multicultural community of some 140,000 people. The story of these peoples is told in the displays and research archives of the museum. Descendants wishing to understand their origins, and newcomers wanting to discover the area’s history, are welcome to visit the displays and to also research in the extensive archives.
