Centrally located in Bunbury’s CBD, the Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre offers a memorable space for your events, meetings, workshops and activities. Hire opportunities and partnerships will be considered in the context of the heritage building, collections and displays.
The Classroom is a versatile space with original timber flooring and a peaceful heritage ambience. It is normally set up as an old classroom complete with vintage school desks, but the furniture can be rearranged to suit your requirements. We have used this space to host yoga classes, meetups, film screenings, meetings, school excursions, workshops, and more. Maximum capacity - 50 people, although we recommend no more than 30 people for a comfortable experience in this space.
The Main Gallery Space and Outside Courtyard of the Museum building are also available for partnership opportunities, events, and venue hire.
The City of Bunbury has set the following rates:
- The Classroom (commercial rate) - $204 per day, $40 per hour
- The Classroom (community hire) - $102 per day, $20 per hour
- Not for profit organisations can receive a set amount of free room hire per financial year upon acceptance of their NFP status. Contact the Museum to learn more.
The Museum may be available for venue hire during business hours Monday to Friday (9am to 5pm), Museum opening hours on weekends (10am to 4pm), and occasionally on weekday evenings (finishing no later than 8:30pm, including pack down).
Your application will be assessed by the Museum Team Leader according to the suitability of your event to the unique heritage space, Museum programming, and staff availability. You are encouraged to contact the Museum Team Leader to arrange a time to view the space and discuss before submitting an application form.
While the Museum will provide tables and chairs, you are responsible for setting up the space according to your requirements at the start of your event, and returning the space to its original condition (including returning furniture to its original configuration) prior to the nominated finish time. There will be a helpful checklist provided to hirers to assist in this process. Charges may apply if the room is not left as per its specified furniture configuration.
