Wander the charming Federation Street and see how ordinary people lived more than 100 years ago. Discover the lifestyles and aspirations of our forebears through rooms that are alive with personal treasures, memorabilia and tools of the trade. It is easy to get lost in the charm and detail of the general store or be relieved that, as far as kitchen and laundry appliances go, things have moved on! Explore Burnie's beginnings as a privately owned enterprise and follow its progress through the 19th century in our Early Burnie exhibition. Learn about early exploration and the exploits of the Van Diemen's Land Company; life in the region for early settlers; and the events which led to Burnie's first economic boom at the turn of the 20th century. For information about our temporary exhibitions and exciting programs please visit our website. The museum holds extensive archival collections relating to the history of the North West region including some 400,000 photographs.

    Set up as a streetscape from early 1900's in Burnie. Brings back lots of memories of things now no longer used. A Tasmanian tiger skin also on display

    Is was a good little set up of a street. Wonderful displays of the past. Aimed for adults or late teens. But sadly the was nothing interactive for the children to engage in apart from a hopscotch and to stand near a horse and buggy. How about some dress ups, things to touch and feel and get involved in. Sadly when asked what the best part was all 5 children said the art gallery (which isn't part of the museum) as the could get up close to the pictures. It would be great if you realised that to learn and take in their surroundings children need to be involved. So glad we are locals and didn't pay to go in or we'd have been disappointed.
