Our membership runs annually from September to August. All membership fees go to the running costs and maintenance of the museum, and all support is much appreciated. Come on down to the museum to subscribe in person or follow the tab below to our contact page. 

Individual Membership Fee $15 p.a

If you have a spare moment and would like to support us by volunteering with us, we welcome all skills and ages. Tasks could include anything from managing the front desk over the weekend, to research, to administration. You let us know where your skills and interests lie.  

Contact us to let us know if you'd like to volunteer.

Without the help of our sponsors, we would be unable to keep Picton and Sounds' history alive. All sponsorship we receive is used for  the daily running costs of the museum, maintenance and research. Contact us if you would like to be a sponsor.
