The Kyneton Museum is located in the lovely town of Kyneton, just an hour North of Melbourne.

The Museum Collection is housed in a beautiful bluestone building recognised by the National Trust and designed by architect Andrea Stumbucco who was responsible for many beautiful buildings in the Gold Rush era. The building was designed as the first Bank of New South Wales but in order to meet the banking needs of a fast changing population it made its way to the central Victorian Goldfields.

The latest exhibition showing at the Kyneton Museum is '100 Frames: The January 2011 Flood Event in Photographs'. It is a heartfelt exhibition that tells the story of the 100 Year Flood Event in photographs, inspired by the community of the Gannawarra Shire and beyond. The images have been taken by residents of the Shire, and you can see first hand the destruction the flood brought to their doorsteps. You can also be inspired by their resilience and their ability to keep their sense of humour, despite difficult conditions.

Don't forget that the rest of the Museum is open as normal, so come in and enjoy wandering around the gardens and taking in the outside displays.
