Maitland City Council is custodian to several significant artistic and historic cultural collections. These collections 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.
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, Gaol, Hospital and Morpeth Museum will also be available online in the near future.
You can explore some of those collections by visiting the Collections.Maitland website.
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.
