I have never been to a museum like the 1918 Old Butter Factory that had so much history on show, far to much to list on here. All we can say is don't miss it. A small fee to enter and well worth it.

A great way to spend a few hours wandering around the well labelled displays of yesteryear. I particularly enjoyed the full room displays, complete with mannequins, everything was so true to life and accurate. The staff were friendly and helpful too.

So many interesting things to look at and suitable for all ages. It was amazing to see so many items inside and also outside around the building.

Must see if in Busselton, and great for the kids to see how the pioneers lived - without all the modern electronic gizmos. I marvelled at the engineering and craftsmanship of the 1800's, and how labour intensive life was.

a pleasant walk through the village to this folk museum full of interesting items. The one that sticks in my mind is the corrugated shed by a lot of the old machinery. Just a shed - but no, when you look inside, there is a...More
