Tongarra Museum closed in preparation for Civic Centre move

Tongarra Museum is temporarily closing from Monday 17 July, 2017 while staff complete the packing process in preparation for the move to the City Museum at Shellharbour’s new Civic Centre later this year.

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said although the physical building would be closed to the public, the community would be offered alternatives for assistance on local history, family history and research requests.
  • The Museum Curator will respond to email and telephone requests.
  • Appointments may be arranged for requests from researchers/heritage consultants.
  • A selection of local and family history resources will be made available at Warilla Library to ensure continued access to these collections.
