“Tourist Interest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Kojonup is a quaint town about 150 km from Albany on the highway from Perth. A good place to stop for tourist info and the cafe has good food and coffee. Very popular though.

“Interesting Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Lots of interesting information on the Aboriginal people. The building is lovely being rammed earth and the displays are well presented. Don't stop for coffee though as it costs a small fortune.

“Outstanding, quality museum. Not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Amazing place we could not believe the quality of this museum. It tells the history of the land and people in the area from the indigenous to the farmers. Blended beautifully with their differing tools of trade and ways of life. So thought provoking in many ways.

The changes to both worlds I loved the farmer saying that "now they want him to plant trees, before they wanted him to kill them."

The 3 generations of aboriginal women the 2 older women explaining about turtle eggs the ritual of finding and cooking and eating them. The youngest one saying I haven't tried a turtle egg "I don't think I'd like them".

The museum looks like it belongs in a major city because of the quality of the displays, but there is something much more personal. You certainly leave with a better understanding of all the people who have lived in this area.

“Best museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

This is one of my favourite museums. It's small (it's in a country town!). It tells a story of country life, and life as farmer. It's well designed interesting and thought-provoking.
