A moving and extremely well presented depiction of the work of the Sisters amongst the Aboriginal Communities around the Broome area. Impossible not to gain respect for the compassion and commitment of these remarkable women and their work with the original inhabitants of the land. Well worth a visit or two whilst in Broome.

An in-depth examination of the history of the Sisters, and what they did in this area, including Lombardina and Beagle Bay. Refreshingly open and honest.

Thank you for a most informative and extremely well presented insight into the history of the Catholic education and healthcare in the Kimberley. I went back a second time as I had not allowed enough time on the first visit. Thank you ladies! This is well worth a visit

What an amazing display of history in the Kimberley. Such a treat for the nursing students to have a personalized tour with Kevin P. Thank you to all.

What a surprise, we were expecting just to look around the old building but there was such a wealth of information that a 10 min visit turned into and hour and a half. Great collection of photos and stories.

Fascinating insight into the history of Catholic schooling in the Kimberley. A state of the art chronicle.

Even if not that interested in history you must visit when in Broome. We had an amazing guide called Aggie,(one of the so called stolen generation, who was so grateful to the nuns) the stories she had to tell had us engrossed as well as amused! Well worth a few hours to visit

Allow plenty of time to immerse yourself in this comprehensive exhibition. There are great volunteer guides who are able to impart there personal experiences and explain the extensive and enlightening photographic history of the work of the nuns. There are several interactive computer screens - well worth viewing as they give so much interesting information in the form of letters... More

A truly small and fascinating museum focusing on photographs of half-caste children whom the Catholic nuns educated and nurtured. The guide was a volunteer who was herself raised in their care. Easy to walk to from town.
