  • Eskbank House Museum is the Lithgow districts regional museum. Set within a historic estate, the museum aims to collect, preserve and interpret the histories associated with the early settlement and development of the region. Initially opened to the public on 21 November 1966 as a house museum, one of the earliest house museums in Australia, the collection quickly expanded to support the research interests of the Lithgow District Historical Society. The collection developed to include objects of state and national significance, including the important Iron Black Roses, Sutton Family Crazy Patchwork Quilt, Sir Joseph Cook Collection, and the Lithgow Valley Colliery Company Collection (Lithgow Pottery).
  • The Eskbank House Museum is an amazing part of the history of fire, coal and iron in Australia. Well worth visiting.
