Approaching 50 years at the Greenough Museum

Did you know this is the oldest museum to open in the Mid West of Western Australia? Then known as the Wonga Park Folk Museum, it first opened on Sunday 4th September 1966. Above is a poster from that era. Over the last 50 years there have been numerous changes. The museum is now managed by the Community Group of Greenough, has been renamed the Greenough Museum & Gardens and Adult admissions are now $5.00. The good news is that children still get in for free. On Sunday 4th September this museum celebrates its 50th birthday. Come down and join in the celebrations. You will be pleasantly surprised at the changes that have occurred. This is more than a traditional house museum.
