Gladstone, Gladstone Area
The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum was established in 1985 and is a community cultural initiative funded by the Gladstone Regional Council. It is dedicated to promoting art and heritage for and by the communities of the Gladstone Region and Central Queensland, acting as a focal point for the preservation and display of the region's history and cultural heritage.
Housed in the heritage listed old Gladstone Town Hall, the current Gallery/Museum buildings are linked by a glass bridge walkway, purpose-built to accommodate the nineteenth century marble statue of the Region's namesake, William Ewart Gladstone.
The Gallery/Museum houses an extensive collection of local history objects and resources. Early Beginnings - The Discovery of Port Curtis provides you with useful contextual information to complement viewing their collection.
