  • Very informative and intriguing. Wide selection of photos and items on display. We spent an hour here but you could easily spend much longer if you took your time and read everything
  • Enjoyable local museum with three separate buildings to explore. Plenty of local history. Airconditioning.
  • Interesting displays and stories of the history of Broome. Well worth a visit early on in your visit to Broome.
  • Probably the best $6 you'll spend all day. A classic volunteer run museum with some top quality exhibits describing Broome's fascinating history
  • At the time of writing this I'm sat in the cooling interior of the museum watching a funny video about the old Broome telephone exchange. The two Bills who greet you at the door are charismatic and set the tone for the array and depth of the exhibits inside. A great way to spend a few hours with a treasure trove of exhibits and information on display. Really gives you some background to this dusty town and how's its shaped into what it is.
