Museum of Antiquities
The Museum of Antiquities at the University of New England is the only regional ancient history and archaeology museum in Australia.
The Museum supports the teaching and research interests of UNE staff and students and of scholars worldwide. It also promotes the interest and engagement of the broader community in the history of peoples through the ages.
The Museum of Education consists of two original 1880's school buildings (Pallamallawa and Dumaresq) and a post WWII portable building from the Armidale High School. A weather-shed and a pit toilet complete the ensemble. Each schoolhouse is furnished with authentic school furniture, books, teaching aids and photographs.
The Zoology Museum was established in 1969 as a teaching museum with displays primarily designed to support the teaching of the Zoology department's own students. The displays stress form, anatomy, taxonomy and evolutionary relationships within all of the major Zoological groups and include several fine sequences of associated fossils. In the foyer, there is also a display of old instruments used in the study of animals and animal tissues.
The Heritage Centre — UNE and Regional Archives
The University of New England and Regional Archives (UNERA) is located in the University of New England Heritage Centre at the University's C B Newling campus.
UNERA was established by the University of New England (UNE) in 1957 to serve as a repository for both University and regional records.
The major goal of the Archives is to collect evidence of the social and economic history of the northern region of New South Wales.
