Science History, Culture & Heritage

The Royal Society of Victoria has a long and distinguished history of contribution to the civic and cultural life of Victoria. Founded in 1854, much of our story, and the story of science in Victoria, has been told, but much remains to be discovered, understood and shared.

We have maintained our colonial collections, buildings and grounds on our small CBD triangle for almost 160 years, and hope to continue for many years to come!

The Society holds a beautiful collection of 19th century science journals canvassing a broad range of disciplines, a legacy of its role in holding scientific intelligence for the reference of the Colony of Victoria. Housed throughout our heritage building, many of these volumes are in need of urgent conservation work and binding. Your support in preserving these important cultural items as symbols our beginnings would be much appreciated.
