During the Wet Season work is still being carried out on archives, so the museum is open on most afternoons, including weekends. This is a good chance for locals to see their history - So if the gate is open and Open signs out - Please feel free to come in and soak up some Ord River history.
DescriptionKununurra Museum is run by volunteers of the Kununurra Historical Society, who have been actively collecting the local regional history for over 30 years. These are stored in our purpose-built archive facility in the museum building.
The museum has a growing collection of objects from as old as 1,800 million years ago. Several HD TV screens and a wall projector, run date-sorted slideshows of over 8000 images, with over 2000 of these also online.
Visit the museum to see some fascinating history, documenting the Ord Irrigation Project, the fossil record of the region, and many other aspects of our regional history.
