Burnie Regional Museum

Burnie Regional Museum

Museum in Burnie, TAS

The Burnie Regional Museum’s collections represent the history of Burnie and the surrounding North West region, from the time the first Europeans ventured out from Port Sorell in the mid-1820’s to explore the wilderness of the North West to the present day. The Burnie Regional Museum’s main attraction is the Federation Street, where visitors can glimpse what life was like in 1900 when Burnie was a bustling town of 1500 people at the height of its first economic boom.

The Burnie Regional Museum was founded by Peter Mercer (OAM, AMAA) with objects from his private museum collection that he had been gathering since 1942. It opened its doors to the public in 1971, as the Pioneer Village Museum. In 2011 it was rebranded as the Burnie Regional Museum to better reflect the breadth of its collections. It is now the major cultural heritage institution in North West Tasmania and holds the third largest collection in the state.

The Burnie Regional Museum is a source of knowledge, ideas, stories and memories. It is developed and managed as a community resource and aims to inspire, educate and inform the community and visitors and to contribute to the conservation of the history and heritage of the North-West region of Tasmania for future generations. The Burnie Regional Museum is committed to collecting, preserving, researching, interpreting and exhibiting material evidence of life in Burnie and the surrounding North-West region.
