New look for Tweed Museum website

Discovering the past has a new look at the Tweed Regional Museum with the launch of an updated website for the facility.

Tweed Shire Council says the website features a cleaner, more vibrant look, is easier to navigate and contains all relevant information about the Museum and its branches.

Museum Director, Molly Green said Tweed residents and visitors can use the website to stay up to date with what’s on at the Museum regarding exhibitions, displays, events and other news.

“You can explore our extensive collections online,” Ms Green said.

“The Tweed Regional Museum Collection includes more than 20,000 images and 15,000 objects that tell stories of the history and culture of the Tweed, from 20 million years ago to the present day.

“For those who love searching through history, there are more than 5,500 records available to search right now,” she said.

Visitors to the website can also download heritage walking guides which take you either through the Murwillumbah town centre or along Uki’s main road, the museum director said.

“Brochures of heritage walks are also available at the Museum along with a guide to the many art deco features of Murwillumbah.”

For schools and groups, the new website features an online booking form, making it quick and easy to organise a visit to the Museum.

“There is material which will be helpful for teachers such as guides explaining our hands-on activities, facilities and information to make a visit both enjoyable and educational,” said Ms Green.
