Wollombi Museum

The Wollombi Museum consults local Aboriginal people and organisations for the purpose of upgrading its Aboriginal displays. It considers the Wollombi story that is then told within the Museum as “very inadequate” by present-day standards. The Museum seeks to tell three main histories within its historic Courthouse setting: Wollombi - the Aboriginal meeting place, the Aboriginal Evidence Bill of 1844 (to address the rejection of Aborigines testimony in court), and the Aboriginal trackers who work with Wollombi police for nearly a century from 1840.
