Villa Alba has been owned and managed by the Villa Alba Museum Incorporated (VAMI) since 2004. This organisation evolved from the Villa Alba Preservation Committee established under the former City of Kew in 1984 as a result of community interest in the preservation of Villa Alba. Investigations into the mansion’s heritage fabric commenced in 1984 followed by cost estimates towards restoration. Since that time buildings to the north and south of the house has been demolished, the site boundaries have changed, and the original Committee succeeded by the present incorporated body, VAMI.
The Board of VAMI is elected annually, as per its Rules of Incorporation (2012). It values the important role played by members and volunteers in ensuring that the Museum remains an institution committed to the collection, study and display of 19th century interior decorative finishes, and the components of nineteenth and twentieth century interior decoration. The Board encourages you to visit the Museum on open days and/or special events, and to become a member and/or a volunteer.
