Burnie Regional Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

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. To access our collections please contact us to make an appointment.
The Burnie Regional Museum has a beautiful range of vintage and antique-inspired gifts, quality educational items for children, Tasmanian history books and souvenirs.
