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.

Interesting museum with lots of local artefacts. As child of 60s really enjoyed going back through memory lane especially in the shop display. Reasonable entry price! Thank you

Would have liked to see more photographs (maps and stories) of townsite transition from 1890s to current day - good photo display of these in the picture framer shop on Dempster St. Interesting video - would be helpful to know in advance how long this goes for as some of it more interesting to locals than visitors. Had to leave before it finished as unexpectedly allergies became intolerable due to very dusty environment (chemist nearby offered quick relief with antihistamine!)

There is an eclectic collection of things here which we're interested and have an insight to times gone by. However, there was only one short line about an Aboriginal man helping early settlers track. Otherwise, you would think no one was there when the Europeans arrived as no other comment about their relationship with the local Indigenous clans. I felt like it was history from 40 years ago - a complete white wash!

What a wee treasure. Looks tiny from the outside but it's actually really big inside. Crammed full of really interesting items and we loved how they were all presented. We were pushed for time which was disappointing as you really need a decent amount of time to explore everything and read all the information. The staff are fabulous, friendly and so helpful. The place is clean and the toilets are immaculate. A must see when in this beautiful town.

The Esperance Museum is only open from Thursday to Sunday. And not every day due to a lack of volunteers

Congratulations to the locally run Museum. There was a huge assortment of memorabilia and historic items which have been donated by locals. My father in law fort in the war and drove a Bren Gun Carrier so we were thrilled to find one in this museum as we had never seen one before. The staff were lovely and we would recommend the museum for interesting visit to the past.

A fantastic experience!! Real things used by real people. Not you push a button and a computer generates a story. This is not the one or two small rooms we were expecting, this is a large barn+ full of stuff. A bit dusty (authentic!) So if you are asthmatic take Ventolin. Roughly categorised but also a tad disorganised, but in a good way, real life is disorganised. Marine, phones, war, old technology, old railway carriages, old machinery, horse drawn wagons , groceries...on and on. Glorious and for what is on show a ridiculously cheap price ($6.50 for pensioners). Brilliant, thank you.

What a gem of a museum! Lots of history and well run! Opening hours a bit hit and miss as they only open for 3 hours in the afternoon. Would be good to be open mornings. Lovely ladies at the front and cheap entry fee. Loads of cool things to see, lots of anzac history and the space history was awesome! Some cool marine stuff too. You only need 1-2 hours to dordle around. Loved it!
