Burnie Regional Museum

Burnie Regional Museum One of Tasmania’s treasures that does not have the profile it deserves is the Burnie Regional Museum.

Set up to resemble a Burnie streetscape from around 1900 this indoor “village” is now the third largest collection in the state. Shops in the streetscape represent real business that existed in Burnie at the time and household life with authentic chattels is depicted in various rooms such as a parlour, kitchen and wash-house.

You will find an inn, dentist, carpenters shop, butter factory, photographer, printery, general store and post office, saddler and boot-maker, blacksmith and wheelwright. The museum also houses temporary exhibitions that change from time to time.

You will find the museum in Alexander Street at Burnie. It is open weekdays from 10 am to 4.30 pm.
