Williamstown MuseumWilliamstown Museum

Immerse yourself in the history of Williamstown by visiting the Museum. The collection highlights this historical seaport's maritime history, and also includes furniture, costumes, sporting memorabilia, paintings, photographs and a wide range of social history exhibits that illustrate life in Williamstown from the 1840s.

Managed by the Williamstown Historical Society (founded in 1956), the Museum is located in the Mechanics Institute, 5 Electra Street Williamstown, a National Trust listed building dating from 1860. It is Williamstown's most comprehensive history outlet, offering books, booklets, brochures, postcards, souvenirs & research services.

Williamstown Family Trees (outline with notes or full tree) Our archive section would be pleased to receive your family tree (photos appreciated). We have built up from 78 trees to 200 in the last two years, thank you, contributers.

Please Note : Due to the huge number of queries by mail, email, phone and visits to the museum, our tiny research group has been overwhelmed. Answers to queries are now running at least six weeks behind the queries, and each month more arrive to increase the backlog.
