Something for everyone. Pearling, it's history, pioneers, old techniques bring Broome to life. The importance of Broome's war history is little known. This museum surprises you and is a credit to the work of the volunteers of Broome's Historical Society, Children will enjoy the visit....More

This museum offers heaps of information on the early days of Broome, the time of the pearl luggers. Also there is much information on the Japanese bombing of Broome during the second World War

I really enjoyed this museum. It's quite small but there's lots of great exhibitions and things to look at. I particularly liked seeing the pearls and learning about the pearling history. The war history is also heartbreaking and presented well. Highly recommended.

A fascinating look at early Broome and its development. The information and presentation was first class. We spent a lot longer there than we thought we would. Well worth a visit.

We dropped in here and were very pleasantly surprised with the collection. It is housed in historical buildings and walking through it will give you a great insight as to what life was like in the early days. Admission was cheap and well worth it.

We were pleasantly surprised at the information at the Museum and spent longer there than we expected. We wandered through the many interesting areas, learnt about the impact of WW2, Pearling history, and generally about life in multicultural Broome. A movie we watched showed communications...More
