Share Your Past and Be Part of Bunbury's Future
The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre project is up and running. The City of Bunbury has begun work on the site selected by Council, which is the historic Paisley Centre in the heart of the CBD. Major damp concerns have been addressed, and the focus is now turning to fitting it out for its future use.
The building has its own history as a former school, technical education college, music comedy theatre, visitor centre, restaurant, and dance school.
Have a look at a brief video above showing the site in Arthur Street, next to Centrepoint Shopping Centre, and including some design concepts visualising its exhibition space and collection workroom.
While work progresses on restoring the building, with LotteryWest assistance, the Museum Curator is developing a collection and exhibitions to tell our story of Bunbury's fascinating heritage. To learn more about the collection so far click here.
A community driven fundraising campaign has now commenced with a goal of raising $300,000. To learn more about the project and goals of the Fundraising Committee download the brochure.
