The museum is located in Western Australia’s earliest Registrar’s Office, and former court room, built in 1892.
It houses a collection of artefacts, records and memorabilia reflecting both the mining and agricultural heritage of the district.
It also has material relevant to the Goldfields Water Supply Scheme, including a length runner’s bicycle and section of wood stave pipe.Back to Museums
