Mary MacKillop Place Museum

Since opening in 1995, the museum has been engaging visitors with the remarkable story of Mary MacKillop, Australia's first Saint.

Explore Mary's story through the galleries which are set among beautiful gardens and leafy courtyards.

Learn more about the formation of the Sisters of St Joseph and their contribution to education in Australia. Visit the Old School House and experience the latest in interactive technology.

Explore historic Alma Cottage built in 1866 and Mary's home from 1884 to 1909. The cottage has been restored and furnished to provide a unique insight into the life of the Sisters in the late 1800s.

Discover how the Sisters are continuing Mary's legacy through their community work both in Australia and overseas.
