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 both the local and wider Tasmanian community.

Our visitors are quite often from the furthest reaches of Tasmania and even 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 French expeditions.

Our purpose is to educate, elucidate and record the fascinating stories that have been a part of Cygnet's intriguing evolution within the Huon Valley region.
