Season's Greetings

We, the curator, caretakers and volunteers at the Greenough Pioneer Museum wish you a very happy christmas and all the best for 2010.
The museum will only be closed Christmas Day, otherwise it is business as usual (just remember our new opening hours of 9.30am to 3.30pm). We look forward to having you and your family and friends visit this museum during this festive season.
Scarecrow does Santa - he is holding a traditional Greenough Xmas Tree - the dried out flower stalk of an Aloe plant. These plants have been used locally for over 130 years.

Small Treasures Display

Through funding from the Mid West Development Commission a cabinet has been purchased to hold what we call our "Small Treasures of the Collection" Display. Work is underway preparing the display which will then be placed in the re-developed Cramer Shed. Below are a few objects that will be included in this cabinet.
