Museum Reborn

This is story of John Ward and the Abbey Museum, from its genesis in England as the Abbey Folk Park, to it’s re-emergence in Caboolture QLD, as the Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology.

The remarkable story started with a childhood passion for history. It involves a war, a devastating court case, a translocation to Cyprus, the EOKA movement, a journey to Australia, settlement in the Blue Mountains and then the final move to Caboolture, Queensland.

We hope you enjoy our story!
