'Did You Know' - intriguing facts about the Museum & its collection

Yugambeh Museum has in its collection 12 000+ artefacts such as stone and wooden tools and weapons, from pre-European and historical times, gathered from archaeological sites and open landscape areas across traditional Yugambeh land and neighbouring regions. A large number of the artefacts were collected by the Scout Movement in the 1960s, apparently for scientific research.
