Exhibitions & Events


Claremont Speedway Exhibition

Come along and revisit a bygone era when Claremont Speedway was a ritual for motor enthusiasts and families alike. 

Discover the stories of legendary drivers like Sig Schlam, Chum Taylor and Charlie West, learn about the early days of solos and side cars and reflect on those who lost their lives in pursuit of speed and entertainment.

Ten Stories

Look at the tale behind 10 interesting items chosen from the museum's extensive collection. From Ruth Tarvydas gowns to a statue from the old Sunflower Chinese restaurant that must stay in Claremont, these unique stories are not to be missed. You also have the opportunity to share your own favourite Claremont story and add to the rich history of the Town.
