The Sandgate and Districts Historical Society and Museum’s collection is housed in an air-conditioned, single storey brick building. In the 1880s, this building housed the Mohoupts’ General Store and a local funeral business. In 1993 the building was purchased by the Society and officially opened as a museum in 1994.
The Museum features a wall display of chronological history; a thematic display under glass; various free-standing historical items; a small library of books, video tapes and slides; a large paper collection on file of localities and identities; and a large collection of photographs.
The Society provides guided tours of local historical areas and lectures delivered at local schools.
