Cygnet Living History Museum
Welcome to the Cygnet Living History Museum web site.

Keeping the History of Cygnet Tasmania fresh and alive.

The Cygnet Living History Museum serves as both the repository for the area's history and also functions as the de facto Cygnet Information Centre. Our small but merry band of volunteers are happy to help visitors with suggestions and directions.

Cygnet Living History Museum is run and maintained by a small but dedicated group of local volunteers and helpers. We rely on community support to continue providing access to historic information and resources for the Local, Tasmanian and wider Australian community.

Many of our visitors are from the furthest reaches of Tasmania and very often from interstate. With a surprisingly strong representation having regularly come all the way from France (pre-COVID), where there is still considerable interest in the history of our region thanks to its exploration by various historic French expeditions.

Our purpose is to record, preserve and keep alive the history of Cygnet, Tasmania and our surrounding communities for future generations. We offer information for research, education, enjoyment, reflection and knowledge sharing.
