Hawkesbury Regional Museum in Windsor has a long history including a rich indigenous cultural heritage established by the Darug people, as well as a distinctive built environment dating back to the earliest days of the colony. The Museum conserves and interprets that heritage to residents and visitors, many of whom have family links to the area.
The visitor experience comprises a new, purpose-built museum, and the heritage building known as Howe House. Together they form a unique cultural facility located on one of the oldest land grants in Australia. As well as a permanent exhibition on the themes of the river, land and people, the museum offers a program of changing temporary exhibitions on a wide variety of subjects.
Heritage precinct walking tours are conducted by trained guides on a regular basis and the bookshop sells a large number of books on the history of the area.
Individuals and groups of people with a disability are very welcome. The museum is wheelchair accessible, and there is a disabled toilet. There is limited access to Howe House.
Activity sheets for children give them something to do and make the museum experience more meaningful and enjoyable. Fun activities for kids are held most holidays.
