Galleries, Museums and Collections

Housed in the original Imperial Hotel (built 1897), the museum has an extensive collection of historic West Coast photographs, memorabilia and minerals.
More than 1,000 photographs are displayed across 23 rooms, many of which were collected by Mr Eric Thomas, who first established the museum.
There are also numerous household items, personal effects, documents, coins, cameras, theatre projectors, antique mantel clocks, kerosene lamp collections, medallions, badges, gems and minerals – all depicting aspects of West Coast heritage.
Also take the time to view an extensive Royal Family memorabilia collection from Queen Victoria to the present and watch a film about Mount Lyell and the memories of the towns people.
