  • 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.
  • Great volunteer run museum. Lots of artifacts and written history of the area. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting facts about the history of Broome and NW Aust.
  • Exellent
