Collection Policy

The Collection of Tweed Regional Museum was created in 2004 by an amalgamation and transfer of ownership to Council of the collections of the historical societies of Murwillumbah, Tweed Heads, and Uki and South Arm.

The Collection Policy was adopted in 2006 and aims to strategically enhance the depth and importance of the Collection by approaching collecting in a manner that reflects the Tweed Region as a whole, single entity.

The Collection Policy of Tweed Regional Museum has a primary focus on collecting for exhibitions, educational purposes, research and archiving. The Policy undergoes regular reviews to ensure that the Museum’s collecting focus keeps pace with what is an increasingly diverse and evolving region and reflects the people, places, environment and culture of the Tweed.
