The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum (LDHCH Inc.) opened in 1988 and is a volunteer run museum which has grown substantially in the last 30 years from a small museum into one with a collection of around 5000 objects. The Museum is set in reserve gardens on the shore of Currambene Creek in Huskisson.
The Museum tells the history of Jervis Bay which was originally a boat-building community, and also has an internationally significant collection of maritime instruments. We have a changing exhibitions program, monthly markets and other fund-raising activities through-out the year. We are open 7 days a week with the help of our fantastic volunteers.
There are a full range of opportunities to engage with the museum as a volunteer, from research and working with the collection, customer service, visitor information and a range of other fund-raising activities. Some of our volunteers are retired teachers who provide guided tours to seniors groups, schools and bus tours.
