The Gulgong Holtermann Museum is a contemporary museum housed in two beautifully restored 1870s Gulgong gold rush buildings. These two buildings along with many others were photographed in 1872 and are now part of the Holtermann Collection of photographs which are United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) listed.

The Gulgong Holtermann Museum has worked closely with the State Library of NSW to have this digitised collection displayed on interactive touchscreens and mounted photographs throughout the museum. Visitors are able to become immersed in the unique photographic history of Sydney, Melbourne, Gulgong, and its surrounding areas.

It is now possible to take history onto the streets of Gulgong. Simply scan a QR code to download a free narrated Interactive Street Trail to enjoy our rich photographic history.

Children's interactive touchscreens include puzzles, which are excellent tools for school groups and fun for visiting families.

This Museum is a must when visiting the Mudgee region.
