The Willunga Branch of the National Trust was formed in 1969 and the Courthouse Museum opened in 1970. The Slate Museum opened in 2005. Our major aim is to preserve and protect the heritage of the area through displays, publications, research and advocacy. The Research Room in the Courthouse Museum has documents, maps, books and photographs for public access.  Research can be undertaken for remote inquirers if volunteer time is available.


Family and Local history research. Information is always welcome about local books or publications to add to the Research Room collection. Information about policeman stationed at the Police Station and about local doctors is being collated.
Willunga Slate. The Willunga Slate Museum explores the important role of the slate industry in the district. Information is welcome about slate quarrymen and their families in Willunga.
The Bassett Boys Schoolroom has been resotored and developed to give children (and adults) an 1860s classroom experience.
