The Braidwood and District Historical Society was founded in 1970. We encourage the study of the history of Braidwood and district and promote and undertake the preservation, storage and display of artefacts and records of historical interest. We promote and publish historical works and studies related to the area and foster the sharing of information through lectures, readings, discussions, excursions and exhibitions. We celebrate, protect and share the heritage of the region.
We own and run the Braidwood Museum which holds a rich collection of objects and archives. Our researchers assist with family history enquiries and we sell a large selection of books relevant to the area.
Open Friday to Sunday 11am - 2pm
The Society is run entirely by volunteers.
Please check if travelling as occasional staff shortages can result in unexpected closures.
