The Redland Museum was officially opened in 1970, and since then has grown through eight stages of expansion to its present size of 1 450 square metres. The Museum and research collections relate to all aspects of the history of the Redland Shire from 1842 until the present.

The Museum collection of 13 000 objects includes treasures such as a rare working example of a wooden Halladay Standard pumping windmill that has been lovingly restored; a bell from an historic local sugar cane plantation; Captain Louis Hope’s harmonium; an early example of a Cleveland Bakery cart; a 1930s railcar of the type which ran the Brisbane to Cleveland Line, and a working Garrett portable steam engine from 1900. Temporary exhibitions change every six to eight weeks.

Redland Museum is a non-profit community association, with a membership base of over 280, including 60 active volunteers and 3 paid staff. Our mission is to preserve the heritage of the local community, to operate an excellent museum with outstanding displays, and to entertain and inform the public.
