Heritage

Chapman Valley Museum

Located in the heart of the Nanson Hamlet the Chapman Valley Museum is a treasure even visiting anthropologists cannot resist.

The Museum is home to an impressive display of old farm machinery, vehicles, local history and photos brought to you by the Chapman Valley Historical Society. The Chapman Valley Historical Society is a community group dedicated to preserving and promoting our local history, which includes local pioneers, railway and mining. Treat yourself to a visit at the Chapman Valley Museum, you’ll be surprised by what you’ll discover.

The museum is also now home to a wonderful tribute to the 42 Fallen Soldiers from the Upper Chapman region in WW1.

Open Wednesday’s 9am until 12pm and Sundays 1pm until 4pm.  (Closes during the hotter months end of November and re-opens again first weekend in March)
