Our digital collections

Our cultural collections tell us so much about our City, our region and our place in the world through historic objects, archives and through the eyes of artists.

You can explore some of those collections by visiting the Maitland Digital Collections website.

The items are spread across facilities and sites within the City and include Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Maitland Library, Maitland Gaol, Morpeth Museum and the old Maitland Hospital.

Collection funding

Thanks to an extensive digitisation project, supported by the NSW Government Regional Cultural Fund, the entire Collection of the Maitland Regional Art Gallery is now available to search online. The collections of Maitland Library, Maitland Gaol, Maitland Hospital and Morpeth Museum will also be available online in the near future.


Many of our historical highlights also feature on Storyplace, a Museums & Galleries of NSW project that features culturally significant stories from around the state, including dozens from here in Maitland.
