We called in on a walk around Robe and stayed for quite a while perusing what is a most interesting collection. This is certainly worth a visit.

Housed in a gorgeous 1860's restored building at the end of the main Street this collection, overseen by a knowledgeable volunteer, is well worth a visit. We learned a lot about the early settlers from England and China.

Tiny little museum located next to the wharf. Full of interesting stories and artifacts from Robe's past. Won't take you very long to see everything due to its small size. Congratulations to the person who did the graphic design for the layout etc. Looks great....More
