Cairns Museum

For only $5/adult and $2/school child or $12 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children under 17 the Cairns Musuem is almost free.  We would love you to support the Cairns Historial Society and Museum. 

The Cairns Museum located on the corner of Sheilds and Lake St presents a history of Cairns and District in static and pictorial displays. Beginning with our Aboriginal and Islander beginnings, the Chinese influence and early timber, mining and agricultural industries, the displays touch on every period of our development from foundation to the present day.

Maritime and railway historical items are presented on the spacious verandahs, while displays reflecting our domestic artifacts, the impact of European culture and local Aboriginal history are presented in the main showrooms.A representation of an early Chinese Joss House is an important feature.

A range of Society publications and monthly bulletins are available for sale at the counter and a video outlining the attractions of Cairns and District is constantly displayed for the enjoyment of visitors. The Cairns Museum is fully airconditioned.

Open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

There is also a museum gift shop that aids the running of the Cairns Museum.  The shop carries a range of tourist souveniers, travel books, videos, maps and postcards.  You can contact Paula at the shop by emailing histsoc@cairnsmuseum.org.au
