Description

The St Helens History Room, on the East Coast of Tasmania, is a small, regional museum.
At the St Helens History Room, there are over 1000 artefacts on display. These are presented thematically to represent the various stages of settlement of St Helens. Our collections are very accessible as the museum is open seven days a week during regular business hours. The St Helens History Room is situated at the St Helens History and Visitor Information Centre behind the St Helens Library building, opposite the Post Office.
Look for the Tin Dragon sculpture outside, he will point you in the right direction. Visit 'The Chinese Experience' and learn first-hand about this interesting area before you set off to explore the beautiful beaches or the marvellous mountainous hinterland.
