Donnybrook Museum

Understanding our history to plan our future

The humble shed which houses this Museum masks the treasures to be found within. Donnybrook has a rich history as a primary producer, including dairy, beef and apples, gold and stone. Along with items which reflect the local industries, the Museum contains fascinating items related to the local community. Look out for the souvenir matchboxes collected by a local resident, a blast from the past when you could pick up a souvenir match box from the local service station, restaurant or hotel. Some of them would probably be censored now!
