The Way It All Began

The Geraldine Vintage Car & Machinery Club started in 1967. Later, Jack Morrison of Geraldine brought the 'Sherratts Coal & timber yard' at 178 Talbot Street and built the building that we now know as the 'Morrison building'. Mr Morrison and some of the club members then stored their vehicles in the building and they enjoyed having club days.​

On New years eve 1970, most of the cars were in the New Years Eve parade through the main streets of Geraldine, upon been returned one of the cars  still had its battery connected (magneto battery) this then caused a terrible fire that destroyed most of Jack Morrisons car collection. Only three vehicles that were in the fire, are still on display in the museum today.

The next day some local men came and offered to "help clean up", Jack Morrison was a tad dismayed at the situation and abruptly replied "take the lot!"

Gifting the land and buildings to the Geraldine Vintage Car & Machinery Club.

The building was then rebuilt in 1976, officially reopening in 1979, aptly named the "Morrison building".

From this date, the Museum opened on weekends to the public, eventually adding more buildings and opening more days until the Museum has become the one we know now.

We are committed to a sustainable future that improves the social and environmental well being of our community.

We are always forward thinking in environmental improvements that foster a sustainable future. 

We believe that that even a small step to a sustainable future is an important step.

At the Museum we use sensor lighting, saving power to minimise the environmental impact.

Three types of rubbish disposal for our visitors are available: Compost, recycling and 'dirty rubbish' (that is uncompostable or recyclable) these bins are labelled and easily accessible.

We promote a sense of community at our Museum, having our Club members, whom are often elder gentlemen, volunteering as our 'doormen' . This gives these lads a sense of community and also interaction with international visitors that they may not have otherwise, keeping them in touch with the world outside of our community.

Secondly, we offer free entry for children to the Museum, we believe that this fosters the longevity of Geraldines history by making it readily available to the next generations.
