The museum’s origins can be traced to England, where the first social history museum of Britain known as the Abbey Folk Park, was established in 1934 by Rev. JSM Ward. His passion for history and antiques led him to found the Abbey Folk Park, and after several tumultuous years due to the wars, it was then moved to Caboolture, in its current location.

Travel back in time, past 500,000 years when you explore the relics and displays of the museum. With a focus on British origins, the collections span prehistoric Europe, through the Bronze and Iron ages, past Medieval Europe, and modern times. Artefacts are taken from ancient Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Cyprus, and so much more.
