Cairns Historical Society & Cairns Museum Christmas Party on 14th December saw over 100 Members, Patrons, Sponsors, Volunteers and Staff viewing the newest Temporary Exhibition "Water, Water Everywhere" while listening to the gorgeous harmonies of the Soul Sisters, as they performed a set of Christmas carols.

The party continued upstairs on the School of Arts balcony overlooking the city place. The entertainment continued with Maggie Helena providing background carols and The Cotton Club providing canapes and drinks.

If you would like a really authentic museum experience this is where you will get it! The tour guides are as old as the exhibits and brimming with actual knowledge and experience of the pieces they love to educate about.

The museum is currently being refurbished and re-opens in 2017 with new displays but the collections are still available for research. The society has one of the most extensive photographic collections of any regional museum/ historical society. The range of other documentary material is also impressive for local history buffs. Volunteers do an incredible job at helping gather material.
