We disseminated information about the history of the Batchelor township and surrounding areas. This includes some information about the local indigenous people, the farming origins of the township of Batchelor, the Rum Jungle Uranium Mine and the extensive activity in the area during World War 2. Displays cover all aspects of local development including the social history of the area. It is primarily an interpretive museum, with some displays of artefacts and many photographs dating back to the early white settlement. We operate a kiosk with light refreshments. Visitors to the museum include members of the local community, overseas travellers, tour groups, grey nomads and the wider community in general. The museum and kiosk are wholly operated to date by local and visiting volunteers. The displays and the restoration and maintenance of the buildings have been enabled over the years of operation by donations from all levels of government, the public and the efforts of the volunteers.
