Ararat - Langi Morgala Museum




The Museum's Aboriginal name translates as "home of yesterday". The collection is housed in a bluestone and brick building built in 1874 and is the home of the Ararat and District Historical Society.

Displays, including many photographs, dressed models, clothing and farm machinery, reflect the gold mining rush of 1856. The Mooney and Charles Best collections of Aboriginal artefacts are also featured. The large collection covers a wide variety of themes of local importance, and includes objects from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The objects are typically displayed under glass in cabinets with larger items on open display. Some domestic items are on open display in four themed "rooms".

Large pieces of machinery are displayed outside, along with the refurbished blacksmiths shop. Some more contemporary items, such as those relating to local World Champion & Olympic Cyclist Shane Kelly OAM and other local community organisations are also in the collection.

A rare 1603 James I silver shilling is also exhibited in the Museums coin collection
