Due to flooding of the original museum building in 2009, the museum’s collection is temporarily housed in a storage facility.
We plan to be moving to our new home at 215A Harbour Drive in late 2012 or early 2013 depending on the completion of works to ensure the new facility functions well as the city's museum.

The aim of the Coffs Harbour Regional Museum is to reflect the social and cultural history of the Coffs Harbour Region with a primary, but not exclusive emphasis, on developing collections and exhibitions reflecting the relationships between the region’s residents and the area’s maritime and hinterland waterways.
To bring Coffs Harbour’s history alive.
The Coffs Harbour Regional Museum, which is owned by Council, relies on volunteers to work in all facets of museum work. We will be recruiting for new volunteers in the near future. If you are interested in joining our hard working and enthusiastic volunteers, please contact the museum on 6651 5239.
Work in progress
During the closure of the Museum, the staff and volunteers have been focusing on Collection Care and Management.
One of our major projects has been scanning and cataloguing our large collection of photographs. This project is run in conjunction with the Coffs City Library under the banner of Picture Coffs Harbour.
