This excellent museum combines temporary art exhibits with a permanent exhibit on the history of the region. There is also a one teacher school.

This museum was recommended to me by a lady at the Anzac Centre. I'm glad I took the time to visit. There is a beautiful National Geographic exhibition on at the moment. Along with Aboriginal culture and history exhibitions. Its a must visit.

We were pleasantly surprised by just how good this place proved to be. A very friendly welcome and then some great exhibits, giving an insight to Albany's interesting past. There was even a special exhibition upstairs called 'Rough Medicine' which certainly did not pull any...More
