The Chifley Home and Education Centre has reopened!

Construction of the Central Tablelands Collections Facility is almost complete.  The new Collections Facility will open in 2022 and will provide collection management services for museum staff, researchers and the community.

The facility will safeguard the future of our local collections and be a place where valuable and fragile collections are housed, along with archives and other significant cultural items currently held under the care of Bathurst Regional Council.  There are over 16,800 objects held in Bathurst Regional Council collections, these range from Cobb and Co coaches to Ben Chifley’s pipe, works by major Australian artworks through to Bathurst 1000 winning race cars.

The facility will also provide industry standard storage and services for significant items from smaller regional museums, historical societies, education facilities and private collectors across the region.
