Delve into Merimbula's rich and interesting past with The Merimbula-Imlay Historical Society,  a non-profit organisation that maintains and manages the Old School Museum.


Housed in a beautiful heritage building dating from 1873, originally built as a school with the master’s residence attached, and using locally quarried stone, it is one of few buildings of its type remaining in Australia today.

The Society is also care for an archived collection of written material, oral histories, photographs and maps.  They perform valuable work acquiring, conserving, researching and exhibiting the history of Merimbula, Pambula and surrounding areas  for the purpose of education and enjoyment.

They also hold events, open days and conduct exhibitions outside of the museum including the Merimbula Festival, a celebration of craft and heritage.

The museum is open Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1.30pm to 4.00pm.
