The Gregory Terrace Museum and Archives serve to promote the history of the College and showcase the remarkable story and traditions of Terrace over the past 143 years. They stand testament to the dedication of the Christian Brothers, teachers and Old Boys who have passed through our gates and serve an important function in preserving and sharing historical knowledge with the Terrace Family.
The Museum proudly tells the stories of our Terrace Gentlemen, such as the sacrifice of young lives in the service of our country, the bravery and enterprise in saving lives and the pioneering work in medicine. There are stories of academic prowess, sporting achievements and distinguished professional careers. There are also stories of ordinary lives lived - each with its own purpose, each making the collective story of St Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace what it is today. Alongside and as a compliment to these stories are important artefacts and items of memorabilia on display, dating back to 1875.
The College Archives, also a part of the Museum, serve to catalogue and organise documents and objects not on display in the Museum. All donated items are stored in specially designed, high quality archive storage facilities to ensure the preservation of every object.
The Terrace Museum provides a place for Old Boys and family members to visit, reminisce and/or donate their treasured items for the future generations of Terrace Gentlemen. If you have any enquiries or items you wish to donate to the Terrace Museum please contact the College Archives Manager.
The Museum, located at the top of the Treacy Centre on Gregory Tce, is open from Monday to Friday 9am - 3pm (term time only). To arrange a visit please contact the Archives Manager.
