George Hanna Memorial Museum
Named after the former Mayor of Botany who played a large part in its establishment, this museum is devoted to the history and culture of the Botany area. Opened in 1995, it is run by the City of Botany Bay council and the Botany Historical Trust. The main exhibits are short-term exhibitions, generally running for three to six months, on subjects such as ecology, local history and aspects of present-day life in the area. George Hanna Memorial Museum museum also has plans for a permanent display about the Botany wetlands.
I'm not a frequent visitor of museums, but I enjoyed the GHMM exhibition on the Sir Joseph Banks Hotel. I found the collection of artefacts and the stories of personalities and events that shaped the local area both intriguing and enlightening. Definitely worth a look.
I saw the exhibition they did on the local pub, the Sir Joseph Banks Hotel, and it was great. A lot better than I thought from such a small, out-of-the-way museum. They had sourced period costumes and accessories, and had a whole heap of objects dug up from underneath the original buildings (before they got redeveloped into private residences).
It's great value 'coz it's free, you just have to find it!
