Berrima District Historical & Family History Society Inc.

Berrima Museum is located in the historic village of Berrima, NSW, mid-way between Sydney and Canberra. The museum is managed and operated by volunteers of Berrima District Historical and Family History Society Inc, founded in 1960. Berrima Museum has been described as one of the best volunteer run museums in New South Wales. Its Mittagong archives contain an extensive collection of the history of the Berrima District, known today as the Wingecarribee Shire. Support material for the museum's displays is sourced from the archives. The museum was established in 1976 following the donation by the Lansley Family of their former home, which was relocated from Moss Vale. Subsequent additions have been made, in keeping with the character of the building.

Collections

The collection comprises over two thousand items. Highlights include artefacts made by the industrious German Internees at Berrima during WWI, the local cottage hospital and medical equipment, early household utensils and gadgets, ladies' and gents' accessories and clothing, aboriginal artefacts and a collection of photographs.
