Gulgong Holtermann Museum is a community project and a museum space located in gold rush town of Gulgong, New South Wales. Two of the town’s earliest buildings are to house an interactive educational and tourist facility based on the UNESCO listed Holtermann Collection – photographs taken for Bernhardt Holtermann during the “roaring days” in the 1870s. Public launch of the project took place on 22 January 2015. The new museum space will be formed by series of three interconnected multifunctional pavilions built behind the restored heritage street-front buildings. The first is to be used as an extension of the exhibition space and for temporary exhibits, the second an event space and the third a workshop space. The museum design employs passive solar heating and natural cooling and lighting.
