Mugga-Mugga's simple dwelling has been adapted and extended over time. Settlement on the site commenced in 1838 and its centerpiece is a simple cottage built for the head shepherd of Duntroon in the 1870s.

The small stone cottage has been conserved and furnished with household items that belonged to the Curley family who moved to Mugga-Mugga from Duntroon in 1913.

Mugga-Mugga offers a range of popular learning and community programs and unique opportunities for venue hire.

Admission to Mugga-Mugga includes a tour with our guides featuring images of otherwise inaccessible areas of the cottage using our new Interactive Tour.  The tour is also available to download via iTunes to browse at home before or after your visit.

You can also experience the house online via our Google Cultural Institute page.
