Gallery and Museum collections GO LIVE!
Photographs, paintings, prints, convict tools, historical records, clothing, military paraphernalia, sculptures, farming equipment, household items, boat building tools and much more can now all be accessed remotely as the collections of both the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery and Hawkesbury Regional Museum are made live online!
This project has been made possible by a State Government grant through the State Library of NSW. The funds were used to upgrade the Hawkesbury Library Service catalogue system and to also integrate the Museum, Gallery and the Library’s Hawkesbury Images catalogues into the same system.
Hawkesbury City Council is one of the first Local Governments in Australia to integrate its cultural collections so that people can search across all collections if they wish to.
For more than 18 months Gallery & Museum staff have been working diligently behind the scenes documenting, photographing and digitising over 7,000 Museum objects and 500 artworks for the online collection catalogues.
Try searching the collections, including recently digitised items. You can browse the collections thematically, and read about fascinating objects in the catalogue. Not all collection items have been uploaded yet, and more are being added each day.
So come and visit us online!
