REVEALED: The historic Tweed Heads Court House upgrade

Finishing touches are being made to a major upgrade of the Tweed Regional Museum in Tweed Heads, with Stage 1 of the refurbishment to reopen to the public this Sunday.

The complex has been closed since March as restoration took place on the site’s historic Tweed Heads Court House building – one of the last remaining public buildings of its era in Tweed Heads.

“The Court House has been restored to something like its original state,” Tweed Regional Museum Director Judy Kean said.

“The Court House displays now focus on the life of this significant heritage building, as well as including items from the Museum collection with an emphasis on the Tweed’s maritime history, and the border region.

“The second stage of refurbishment, to get underway later this year and early next year, will provide a new fully accessible entry to the Court House, a revamp of the Museum Precinct in Pioneer Park and a refurbishment of Boyd’s Shed.”

The upgraded Tweed Regional Museum Tweed Heads will be open for extended hours until the end of January, the Museum will be open to the public Sunday to Wednesday from 10am – 4pm.
