The Museum has won international acclaim for the quality of its displays and the scope of its collections, from many different civilisations and cultures. Its European collections of medieval art have a premier place in Australia.
Recent Accomplishments of Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology:
The Museum Board is currently working on two new exciting projects: the construction of a new Art Gallery to house the priceless collections of Old Masters, and a reconstruction of a full scale Medieval Village. When these come to fruition, John Ward's vision of a Folk Park will have come full circle.
Current Activities of Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology:
The Abbey Touramanet: This is Australia' s largest and most authentic medieval event and thousands of re-enactors and enthusiasts from Australia and overseas gather near Caboolture to celebrate this exciting festival.
In the Main Lists, the Common, the Village Green or Great Hall and crowded Medieval Market there is pageantry and colour and music for everyone... the sound of trumpets, great heraldic banners, massed pavilions, the clash of steel and crashing cannon, the quiet voices of sacred chant.
