The Monsignor Hawes Heritage Centre (MHHC) is a state-of-the-art interpretive centre, within the grounds of St Francis Xavier's Cathedral, that tells the story of architect-priest Monsignor John Cyril Hawes through his own words.
By utilising Hawes’ diary entries, drawings and personal records, visitors are privy to Hawes' personal thoughts.
Large pull-out display drawers, designed to strict conservation standards, display a selection of Hawes’ original drawings and documents that wouldn’t otherwise be seen due to their fragile nature.
The MHHC complements the adjacent Cathedral and is the gateway to the Hawes Heritage Trail.
The Centre is also the starting point for Tours of St Francis Xavier Cathedral and tickets ($5) can be purchased here.
Adjacent to the Museum is Laian Cafe and Restaurant.
