The Mount Morgan Historical Museum in Morgan Street houses a varied collection of interesting artefacts which tell the tale of Australian colonial life and extensive displays that depict the town's great mining industry.

It has had many interesting and varied occupants since construction in 1895. The original owners were James Stewart & Co., merchants whose name is deeply etched in Central Queensland merchandise history.

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Mount Morgan rugby union players still regard the 1911 team as an inspiration. The story is told that a representative match played between Central Queensland (13 of the 15 players were from Mount Morgan) and New South Wales ended with a remarkable result. The 13 players finished their shift in the old underground mine, working for hours with picks and shovels, and minutes later ran onto the field to beat the blues 9-6.
