Founded in 1913, the Castlemaine Art Museum has a unique collection of Australian art, First Nations cultural material and historical artefacts reflecting the early history of the region.
Located on Dja Dja Wurrung Country in the foothills of Mt Leanganook, Castlemaine Art Museum (CAM) is a leading regional institution in the sphere of bold curation, bringing art and objects from the past and present into multilayered conversations, creating a dynamic, inclusive platform for new voices, community connections, reflections and ideas. Founded in 1913 through community subscription and located within a heritage-listed art deco building since 1931, CAM houses a nationally significant and unique collection of Australian artworks, including important First Nations cultural material from across Australia and a collection of historical artefacts reflecting the early history of the region. Its permanent art collection is recognised as one of the most important in regional Victoria, with strong emphasis on traditional landscape painting and works by women artists. CAM’s holdings of Tonal Realism paintings are of national significance.
