Formerly the Kingaroy Power House (1925-1952), the Kingaroy Heritage Museum showcases the history of the Kingaroy region under the themes of ‘People, Power and Peanuts’.
The early development of town and region is illustrated by informative displays and a large collection of photos. The peanut exhibition area contains machinery and photos of the early development of the peanut industry, including prototypes of national significance, invented by local farmers.
The Museum also has facilities available for study and research, attached to its archive area. Research services are available and a fee applies. A new exhibition and educational area has been developed with the opportunity for the local community and visitors to experience travelling and local exhibitions. School groups can enjoy hands on experiences with activities such as the Peanut Detective Hunt and Museum Activity sheets. Tours can be arranged by prior request.
The Museum is open from 9.00am to 4.30pm Mondays to Fridays and 10.00am to 2.00pm on the weekends and public holidays (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Good Friday and ANZAC Day when the complex is closed). Admission is free.
