The Lord Howe Island museum is a treasure chest of natural history, fantastic collections, excellent learning resources, changing displays, inspiring information, great gifts and lots of interactive ways to enjoy learning more about this truly unique place on our planet.
The Museum shop sells a range of quality books, maps and postcards of Lord Howe Island’s history, flora and fauna. Most of the books have been written and produced by local authors.
To encourage local residents in art and craft, the museum shop sells mainly locally produced items such as photo prints, art prints, locally designed T shirts, local screen printed tea towels, wood turning and weaving.
