Harvey Museum is located in the old 1936 Railway Station. It's claim to fame is being depicted as Subiaco Railway Station in the film "A Fortunate Life" by AB Facey. This old building houses many historical collections and memorabilia of the pioneers in the districts of the Shire of Harvey.
The Museum has undergone change in the last twelve months with the increase of items and memorabilia. Have you ever wanted to view the Invasion Currency produced by the Japanese in WW2? Well we have a small collection! Our new display cabinets in our Military Room are full of new and unique items. Another room has also had a major change, as it now incorporates a May Gibbs Collection. May Gibbs lived in Harvey in her childhood years and its native flora and fauna inspired her many story books in later life. We celebrate May Gibbs as one of our own. Several new photo boards have been added throughout the Museum showcasing early life in the districts of Harvey. Timber, agriculture, dairying, transport, past railway stations, to name a few, feature photographs of early settlement and change throughout the years. The Museum encourages children to try their hand at pen and ink, draw on a black board, use old typewriters and telephones and be thoroughly bewildered.
