The Goldfields Exhibition Museum is housed in the grand historic two storey former Wardens Court Building, which was erected in 1898. Wander through each of the rooms to view a range of fascinating displays including Aboriginal artefacts, photographs, models and authentic prospecting equipment. A highlight is a superb photographic panorama of old Coolgardie.
See one of the largest antique bottle collections in Western Australia, the Waghorn bottle collection, one of the finest you’ll see anywhere in the world. Bottles and glassware on display date from 300BC to the present day.
The Goldfields Exhibition Museum will give you a greater understanding and appreciation of the lives of the Goldrush pioneers of the 1890s. The exhibits are testament to the discovery, growth, boom and decline of Coolgardie and the surrounding Goldfields.
Coolgardie is a six hour drive east of Perth, approximately 40 kilometres west of Kalgoorlie.
