About the organisation

The Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society holds a local history collection, housed in the former Port Melbourne Town Hall (1882).

As this area drastically alters, physically, demographically and politically, we endeavour to protect and preserve the heritage and identity of this port settlement. We collect items only related to Sandridge/Port Melbourne as defined by the boundaries at 1 January 1994.

Totally voluntary and still cataloguing, we are open to the public only by appointment, or Tuesday mornings 10 to 12.30.  Although we have no museum area, each year we curate a major public exhibition from the collection.
