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.

See one of the largest antique bottle collections in Australia with an array of colours, shapes and sizes of 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 a 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.
