Sponsors and Partnerships

The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre is owned and operated by the City of Bunbury. Partnerships with the Museum may be cultural heritage-oriented or projects of mutual benefit in line with the purpose of a Council-owned, community-based museum.

For example, the Bunbury Museum has agreements with:

  • The Western Australian Museum – Shipwreck Galleries
  • Andrew and Nicola Forrest
  • The Kerry Stokes collection
  • The National Archives of Australia
  • The Australian War Memorial
  • The Australian National Maritime Museum
  • Museum of Natural History, Le Havre
  • Bunbury Historical Society

The Museum also welcomes partnerships with business, government agencies and individuals - contact us for further information.​


Significant business and community support was received during the initial development of the Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre to achieve our contemporary exhibition fitout standards. In turn, this has enabled us to ask major cultural partners to loan objects which can only be displayed within the highest exhibition standards.
