Broome Historical Museum Reviews
Terrific museum a must when visiting Broome, learnt so much about the early history and the displays were brilliant. more »
Great place to visit to get a comprehensive understanding of the trials and tribulations of Broome from it’s early beginnings as a small outpost of civilisation to the current town and industries... 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.
