Broome Historical Museum Reviews
Interesting artefacts that highlight the history of Broome - pearling and WWII. Focus was on European history. Very little indigenous history. Not a place for children. more »
If you go to Broome this is a must-see place. The history of Broome is so amazing. This seems to be the only place that tells the fascinating stories. Definitely worth supporting! more »
Excellent presentation of memorabilia. Was lucky to have a couple of elderly locals to give colour to the displays. Allow 3 hours. Take a coffee.
Very Good place to visit if you are into history or not you will not regret visiting this building. Filled with historical information about Broome. and even if history is not your thing it's still worth a look. Entry price is very reasonable and goes towards the upkeep of the Society. Mostly ran by volunteers. A must do while you are in Broome. They will be very greatful for your visit.
