Cygnet Living History Museum

The Cygnet Living History Museum (CLHM) is a not-for-profit, charitable organisation serving communities in the Cygnet region of the Huon Valley. We display, exhibit, collect, classify, research, conserve and share the history of the area, its inhabitants and activities, past and present.

Our museum is accessible and inclusive, fosters diversity and sustainability and is open to the public most days of the year or by appointment. We offer information for research, education, enjoyment, reflection and knowledge sharing.

Our archives include information on the settlement and establishment of the region – family histories and historic buildings – wooden boat building – timber, mining and other industries – apple & folk festivals – the convict era & probation stations – Fossils, Minerals, Geology & Geophysics.

The Museum is centrally located in the Cygnet township, housed in an historic church building.
