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.

Learn about the town’s fas­ci­nat­ing pearling his­to­ry and the ter­ri­fy­ing Air Raid attack 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, the Broome His­tor­i­cal Muse­um is gov­erned by a ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teer group who devote their time to keep­ing the muse­um open 7 days a week.
