Bunbury Museum: Behind the Scenes

Professional museum staff do a lot more to preserve our cultural heritage than just mounting public exhibitions. Join us to see first-hand how Bunbury's precious heritage is cared for in this rare and fascinating guided tour at the new Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes how trained curators look after precious artefacts to preserve them for future generations. Staff will lift the veil on the mysteries of exhibits, how the centre cares for objects and show you artefacts that may be too fragile ever to be exhibited.
