The Gold Coast Light Horse Education Museum is a not-for-profit military education museum which collects, preserves and displays memorabilia of the Australian Light Horse. 

The museum is run by a group of ex-servicemen and dedicated volunteers passionate about keeping the ANZAC spirit alive.  The museum is sited within the Schmidt Farmhouse and Outbuildings (former), which is a recognised Queensland Heritage Place of significance to the people of Queensland. 

The farmhouse and outbuildings were constructed in the late 1880s–1910 and survives as a rare illustration of the form, construction and materials employed in a small, timber rural dwelling in the Gold Coast hinterland and historically important in demonstrating the farming history of the Gold Coast hinterland in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
