Soldiers Settlement Museum

Description

 

The SOLDIERS SETTLEMENT MUSEUM was created in 2004 to honour the memory of our returned soldiers.  It is located at Campbelltown East Public School, Waminda Ave Campbelltown NSW established in 1961. The school grounds are located on land which was once poultry farms offered to soldiers, after returning from WWI. 

All displays, except those behind glass, can be touched, played with and used.

Our focus is for all visitors to have hands on experiences.

The aim of the displays is not to celebrate war, but instead studies its impact on the citizens of Campbelltown.

 

The collection

The collection was assembled with items permanently on loan or donations from organisations including Campbelltown RSL Club, Dredges Cottage, Campbelltown Historical Society, The Australian War Memorial, committee members and the local community.

 

1st room – “Life at the front” – focuses on military exhibits from all wars

2nd room – “Life at home” – is set up as a cottage with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and laundry etc.

 

The museum is a trip down memory lane or a learning experience for our younger visitors.
