About

Founded in 1958, we are committed to preserving the history and heritage of Kew and its environs. We have an active membership, which meets monthly, and working groups that manage our collection and undertake research. Each year, we publish four newsletters, hold two public lectures, and mount exhibitions at the Kew Court House. We are members of the BHSA, RHSV and AMaGA and have a relationship with PROV as a Class-B Place of Deposit for Government Records.

Our collection

Our diverse collection, some of which is on Victorian Collections, includes archives, artworks, audio-visual material, items of fashion and design, books, documents, maps and artefacts. Our holdings deriving from the former City of Kew collection, our maps and plans, and fashion & design collection have been assessed as being of local and statewide significance.
