Sandgate Historical Society and Museum collects and preserves the history of the local area for future generations.

Our group of volunteers researches old news papers, wills, shipping lists etc and, for future reference, catalogue and store those which are relevant to our local history. The Museum also portrays the chronology of the development of Sandgate since the 1850s. Many historical "items" of interest are on display.

Classes of school children, scouting, history, gardening and aged groups and bus tours are among our many visitors.

The Museum shows DVD's, provides talks and morning tea, by bookings, for visiting groups.

Publications explaining and illustrating various aspects of our local history are also on sale, and a small library can be accessed by members of the Society.
