Starting on Sunday 2 December the community and visitors to Bunbury will be able to enjoy the Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre six days per week.
Since opening two years ago the museum has been open Tuesday to Saturday and has experienced an influx of visitors stopping by to enjoy the historical offerings and stories on display.
Due to visitor requests the operating hours have now been extended to include Sundays adding an extra day for people to find out more about Bunbury’s rich history.
Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan said the additional operating hours would also add to activating the CBD, boost tourism and encourage visitation to the area.
“The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre tells the story WA’s most important regional city and second capital city, Bunbury,” Mayor Brennan.
“Visitors can experience what life was like in the early school days with interactive displays and items in the classroom and learn about Bunbury’s history from pre-colonial times through to the present.”
The museum is also gearing up for a bumper summer with a wide range of events, exhibitions and activities planned throughout the warmer months.
The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre is located at 1 Arthur Street, Bunbury and open from 10am to 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday. Entry is free.
