Esperance Municipal Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Esperance Municipal Museum houses a unique collection of memorabilia dating back to the 1800s. See a range of interesting feature displays covering the region’s early pioneering history, maritime exhibits and farm machinery.

Be sure to check out the world’s most comprehensive display of NASA Skylab memorabilia. Skylab was America’s first space station which plummeted to the earth in 1979, landing to the north east of Esperance.

The Esperance Municipal Museum is located in the old goods shed of what was the town’s original railway marshalling yards. The old building, constructed soon after the turn of the century, is a significant icon in itself, a highlight being its magnificent old beams.

View the extensive range of historical photographs, the locomotive engine, a circa 1820 piano, along with an assortment of gear and life boat from the ship ‘Sanko Harvest’ which is the largest dive wreck off the Australian coast.

Esperance is a one and a half hour flight or an eight hour drive south of Perth.
