industrial pride and ingenuity.

Trafalgar Holden Museum tells that remarkable story and celebrates Australia's Holden heritage from the 1850s to its demise in 2020. Housed in a quaintly preserved 1930s butter factory in Trafalgar, the museum is run by a team of volunteers eager to preserve our national heritage.

Opened in 2014, the museum has grown every year and has new and exciting exhibits rotated every three months, with a selection of Holden's favourite son Peter Brock's cars currently on display. Browse through the re-imagined Holden retail shops, showing all the wares produced by Holden by generations of craftsmen. Also see rare military artefacts from Holden's distant past, motor vehicles bodied by craftsmen and later designed in Australia.

The history of Holden is very much the history of Australian manufacturing and the Australian people. All this comes alive at Trafalgar Holden Museum.

The museum is open every day between 10:00am - 5:00pm including public holidays. Families and friends are most welcome. Large groups may make a prior booking.
