Maffra Sugarbeet Museum

The Museum is housed primarily in the relocated office and weighbridge of the former Maffra Sugarbeet Factory, with an associated shed containing agricultural machinery. An audio-visual of sugarbeet growing around Maffra is included, as are small exhibitions on European exploration, Aborigines and pre-history. Archives and photographs are held off-site at Maffra Library. An extensive collection of Architectural plans is held.


The Museum itself concentrates on collecting items relevant to the sugar beet industry. Local community archival material (including photographs) are held together with the Flo Pearce collection of research documents within the Maffra Municipal Library. Some larger archives items are available only by appointment at the Museum.
