The Brighton Historical Society always has something of interest on display. We draw on our vast range of costume, reference material, photographs and artefacts to create exhibitions that change throughout the year.
Our current exhibition includes a display on Indigenous Bayside created by Dean Stewart from Aboriginal Tours and Education Melbourne (A-TAEM). The display includes a cross-section depiction of the Brighton Beach shell middens, highlighting the thousands of years of continuous settlement by Boon Wurrung people.
Also on display is a collection of artefacts from the former Prince George Theatre on Dendy Street (now the site of a supermarket) and costume, photos and artefacts tracing Brighton's long-standing love of the beach and sea bathing.
Come and visit our rooms on a Thursday afternoon to see what's on display - entry is free, and we are happy to answer questions.
