The National Trust (NSW) is the custodian of a collection of musical instruments dating from 1773 to 1850 – all of which can tell a tale of compositions, songs and players.

A key part of the conservation efforts for our collection of musical instruments is cleaning and storing the items to ensure they are safe for the next generation. We also spend time documenting and cataloguing the collection. This process costs the National Trust (NSW) $35,000.

When you give to protect our collection of musical instruments, you play a vital role in keeping a part of Australian history in tune for the future.
