Drop in for cuppa at museum

Now there is another reason to drop in at the gracious old Mullumbimby building that houses the Brunswick Valley Historical Society Museum.

Alongside all the memorabilia within the museum is a brand spanking new De Longhi cappuccino machine, dispensing good coffee or hot chocolate every Friday morning to thirsty museum visitors, as well as any locals who feel like relaxing under a striped umbrella in peaceful Summers Park at the front of the museum.

Locals Gil Lomath and Mary Polidano have volunteered their time to provide the welcome cuppa that comes with freshly baked scones, and a pot of tea is also on offer.

The museum invites the visitor to step back in time, each room telling the story of the district’s rich past in frequently changing displays, with a wealth of archive, both digital and hard copy, to browse through at leisure.

It is open Fridays 11am to 3pm (as well as market Saturdays), and all are welcome to morning tea served 10.30 to 12.30.

All proceeds from the sale of refreshments go to the museum.
