Burnie Regional Museum

Top choice museum in Burnie

The centrepiece of this absorbing museum is a lovingly crafted recreation of a 1900 Burnie streetscape – including blacksmith's forge and farriers shop, wash house, general store, post and telegraph office, stagecoach depot, inn, dentist's surgery, newspaper office and bootmaker. Each is based on an actual business that once existed in Burnie, incorporates multimedia elements and features excellent interpretative panels. Interesting temporary exhibitions are shown in an adjoining room.
