The Esperance Museum was opened in 1976 by Orlando Stuart, a previous president of the Esperance Shire Council. The Museum Park was the towns original railway marshaling yards, and the main building, constructed soon after the turn of the century, was the goods shed and office.
“Esperance Museum is a museum that has all the information of a city museum, but keeps the rustic and personal appeal of a small town museum, indeed; the town was small just a short while ago. The friendly staff and intriguing relics make this Museum a must do for young and old alike. Well done”. (Google Review)
The Esperance Museum has become regarded as one of the best regional museums in Western Australia. It is a community volunteer based museum, and administered by the Shire of Esperance.
