Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Andrew, is an asset to Kununurra- His desire to teach people of its rich history and continuing efforts to catalogue it the information he receives is amazing.

We walked in and we’re greeted with a smile and his stories kept my 2 boys (13 & 9 years old) captivated.
We could’ve listened for hours to his stories and the boys are searching the museum info on YouTube as he suggested.

Thankyou Andrew, you alone are doing a fabulous job to help preserve and show a rich history not many Australians know of - all for a small donation of $2.00 per person.

One of the highlights of our visit to WA. Andrew runs the place all as a solo volunteer and is incredibly knowledgeable and happy to chat to you about anything ranging from the geological history of the top end of WA (maps and artefacts included) to colonial and war time. Super worth visiting. You could spend hours just chatting and sifting through all the hand marked annotations. Definitely gives the rest of the holiday a deeper understanding. Best value museum in the Kimberly!

Been before and this is a little gem. The manager/President Drew Barker is an absolute fountain of knowledge. You'll need at a couple of hours to work thro all the exhibits but it's worth it.

Despite the messy appearance the gentleman that runs the place is full of knowledge of the history of the area. His stories are engaging, reflecting on the unwritten and unknown history of Australia. Highly recommend visiting this place.

Thanks for the review - Messy? Yes, true, it was at the time, as I was in the middle of a cleanup and as the only active volunteer here it is all left to one person - me! At any rate the rest of the review was all good, so thanks for that.

Never got in and man was still shouting when we got in our car. Have not carried cash for 2 years went into museum and man said you would think people would consider a small museum. Then he said we could do a cash transfer before we were admitted. We were considering when he started to get irritated shouting it’s only$4 . I didn’t appreciate being spoken to like that and we left with him yelling after us.

Wow, what an exaggeration. I took a look at the diary after seeing this. Some people will do all they can to avoid paying $2 and here were two like that, for what I believe is the best value in the Kimberley and they never like being told, as they fly past the donation box as though it is invisible. As far as I am concerned, read the other reviews and you will find the truth.

The guy that runs the place is just bloody amazing, has such a wealth of knowledge about the area and a real passion for it too! Doesn’t look like much of a museum on the outside but inside is a treasure trove of history, I could not recommend going here enough to anyone!

Lots of fascinating stuff telling the short story of this wonderful town. The place is a bit small so the exhibits are packed right. The curator is a local legend and very happy to chat!!

We were fortunate to have the museum open latish on a Friday and then to be treated to a full-on guided tour of the museum by the enthusiastic director of the museum (who has personally collected so many of the exhibits). This museum is a hidden treasure. Don't miss it.
