Western Australian Museum – Kalgoorlie-Boulder
School of Mines Mineral Museum
Geology display including replicas of big nuggets discovered locally.
Wild West Saloon
Pretty much as it sounds; the front bar at the Exchange Hotel has skimpies (some in cowboy hats), TV sports, occasional live music and...

Lonely Planet review
The impressive Ivanhoe-mine head frame marks this excellent museum's entrance; take the lift to look over the city and mines. An underground vault displays giant nuggets and gold bars, and there's also a fantastic collection of trade-union banners. Relocated historic buildings include a miner's cottage and mobile police station (attached to a train). Half-hour guided tours start at 11am.
