Old Museum - New Beginnings

After 46 years, the Geraldton Historical Society has departed from this museum, taking with them the collection. Whilst this might seem a disaster, it also allows the museum the opportunity to reinvent itself and make it more relevant to younger generations of visitors. Thus the headline "old museum - new beginnings."
In the meantime, most of the building has been closed off to allow for maintenance. We still encourage visitors. In this interim period, we suggest you stroll through the gardens, admire the historic trees and view the old farm machinery. The front room of the museum will also remain open  displaying images of the Maley family.

The rooms may be 'cleaned out', but their emptiness also reveals the elegance and simplicity of the original colonial design and structure. Perfect for the architecturally-minded visitor! Also good for visualising new beginnings. Excellent.
