Directions to Burnie Regional Museum
The Burnie Regional Museum allows you to have a pause from modern-day living and reflect on what life was like a 100 years ago. The street scape is based on businesses that actually existed in Burnie.
There is a lot to see in a relatively small area. The recreated street really does give a feel for days gone by with shops housing a dentist, photographer, farrier, blacksmith, chandler, boot maker and printer. Their tools of trade, merchandise and products are all on display. For an insight into home life back then you can look through the window and door into the laundry and kitchen. Try and spot items still in use today. You will come away with an appreciation for how hard they worked and grateful for how inventions have made life more comfortable.
There is a gift shop in the foyer where temporary exhibitions are often on display.
Opening Hours: 10am – 4:30pm weekdays
(Except public holidays) or by appointment
