Villa Alba was built between 1882 and 1884 and is notable for its painted decorations.
It is being restored as a museum and educational facility for the collection, study and display of interior decorations and decorative finishes.
Local History Grant
Villa Alba Museum has received a Local History Grant from the Public Records Office Victoria.
The grant will be used to purchase a Sound Art Installation by Sydney artists Sodacake (Solange Kershaw & Damian Castaldi) which will provide a kinetic representation of the 1897 Auction Catalogue when Mrs Greenlaw sold the house contents.
Villa Alba Museum gratefully acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government and Public Records Office Victoria for making this project possible.
