Tuggeranong Schoolhouse

Recently restored by the ACT Government, and complete with furniture, artefacts and antiques reflecting Canberra’s pastoral and pioneering past, the restored schoolhouse is a must see!

Popular Canberra storyteller, Elizabeth Burness, trading as ‘History With A Difference’, brings stories of Canberra’s pioneering past alive.

Note: Elizabeth Burness is retiring after twelve years operating the Tuggeranong Schoolhouse as a museum. Elizabeth’s collection will still furnish the museum for the open days on Sunday 10 September 2023 and Sunday 8 October 2023. The museum will open for the final time on Sunday 12 November 2023 but without her collection.
