Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre
This school holidays visitors to the museum will be able to view the tiniest objects using an I-Pad or I-Phone thanks to a loan of four I-Scopes from the Leschenault Catchment Council. The aptly named I-Scopes turn I-Pads into microscopes and enable the smallest specimens to be viewed in extreme detail. These brilliant inventions will fit very well with the Museum’s school-holiday theme based on local natural history. Visitors will be able to closely examine specimens gathered by the Leschenault Catchment Council and be amazed by what the eye can’t normally see.
Too add to the excitement the Bunbury Museum is also loaning some taxidermy specimens from the Museum of Western Australia. Come in and closely examine some of the South West’s rare and endangered marsupials, we also have a feral fox named Sancho on display. This exhibit highlights the importance of protecting our unique fauna.
The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
