Early Burnie at the Burnie Regional Museum

Early Burnie

Early Burnie is an exhibition exploring Burnie’s beginnings as a privately owned enterprise and following its progress through the 19th century. The exhibition features many of the Burnie Regional Museum’s fascinating and significant objects dating from before 1900.

Show and Tell: Young Collectors

The Burnie Regional Museum has a dedicated display case where young people from around the North West region can showcase their collections! Whether it’s action figures, shells, stamps or something entirely different, the Burnie Regional Museum would love to see it!

The Unidentified Project

Why stop now?! Even though our exhibition Unidentified is over and done with, there are still some names missing from the faces. We will be posting these portraits one at a time on our Facebook Page and continuing the quest to identify their subjects. We will also be giving you all the information and stories we have gathered so far.
So spread the word - “Do you recognise anyone?”
