Broome Historical Society Museum offers an insightful look into Broome’s diverse cultural history. Take a walk through the charming 1890s former general store, which is now the town’s museum. Check out the well presented visual displays, photographs and artefacts to learn all about the history of Broome.

Find out about the town’s interesting pearling history which has developed into a world-class export industry today. Learn about the terrifying Japanese attacks on Broome during World War II and the impact it had on the local residents and allies who had taken refuge there.

You will be intrigued by the tales of shipwrecks and missing diamonds which takes you on a journey of discovery into the development of a culture that has melded from a diversity of origins. Examine Aboriginal artefacts and memorabilia from the area and discover how the town of Broome became the first truly multicultural district in Australia.

Regarded as one of the best regional museums in Australia, it is located in the town centre of Broome which is a two-and-a-half hour flight north of Perth. Check opening hours prior to visiting.

The Broome Historical Society has been committed to preserving and protecting Broome’s heritage and history for over forty years. Their significant collection is spread across three buildings, including the heritage award-winning Sailmaker’s Shed.
