The Hawkesbury district has a long history including a rich indigenous cultural heritage established by the Darug people, as well as a distinctive built environment dating back to the earliest days of the colony. Hawkesbury Regional Museum conserves and interprets that heritage to residents and visitors, many of whom have family links to the area
The museum comprises a purpose-built construction and the heritage building known as Howe House. Together they form a unique cultural facility offering a high-quality museum experience. As well as a permanent exhibition on the themes River, Land, People, the museum will offers a program of changing temporary and travelling exhibitions on a wide variety of subjects.

Cobham Hall Museum
Open Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays 1pm to 3pm
Cobham Hall - Home of Solomon Wiseman
Cobham Hall was built in 1826 by convict labourers, commissioned by Solomon Wiseman, as a home for himself and his second wife Sofia.
It was constructed of hand hewn Hawkesbury sandstone which is mostly still intact to this day.
The laborious job to hand pick redgum rafters can be seen throughout the roof structure. Lime made from crushed, cooked oyster shells can be seen in the mortar of the sandstone walls as well as the lime wash on the face of the walls and the plaster lining of the ceiling.
The home was later transformed into a hotel.
