The Broome museum ties the places that you've seen in Broome together and puts them in their historical context. The musuem is constantly being updated, every time we go there is something new or something that we hadn't seen last time.

It is unbelievable how many antiques they have in that small place. A well-presented history of Broome!

There is a lot packed into this small museum. Give yourself time to read all the exhibits and watch all the videos. It's air conditioned and the seats are comfortable. Loved the personal histories and balanced perspective of the town's development. Lots of labour of love in this building.

We visited this museum 15 years ago and were keen to return. They have expanded from the house into buildings at the rear and this has helped display the huge collection which covers generations of Broome's history. Well worth a few hours of your time.

Dear MelbourneCosmo, Thank you for reviewing the Broome Historical Museum. Your review seems positive, but you have have given us a poor rating out of 5. (ie 2/5) Was there a reason for this score? As a small organisation with passionate volunteers we are always striving to improve the Museum and welcome all feedback - both good and bad! Thanks... More

From the outside it looks like a little hick town artefact collection, but in fact, it's much more. Good videos, lots of variety, fairly even-handed presentation of the history of the place that's not always pleasant.

a wonderful local museum with great displays and a wealth of history to share. Local history is on display and we learnt more about the war and the bombing of the area.
