Liverpool Regional Museum

The Liverpool Museum was established in 1989 and aims to preserve and promote Liverpool's history and cultural heritage through historical collections, exhibitions and public programs. They explore changing cultural experiences of local people - ways of living, working and believing (in workplaces, homes and communities).

Items from the past are used extensively in Museum exhibitions and public programs - community addresses, education programs and publications.

The Museum includes historic Collingwood House, which dates from 1810 and was the home of Nantucket whaling Captain Eber Bunker. Known as the 'father of Australian whaling', Bunker was part of a whaling venture in the 1790's, which took the first whales in Australian waters.
