What's On in the Museum

Hear from seasoned storytellers and experts as they share the tales of Bunbury's people and places in our Pastime talks, or sit back and reminisce with a selection of photographs showcasing Bunbury over the years during our As We Were Slide Afternoons.

Temporary exhibition, presented by the Bunbury Multicultural Group

Free entry (gold coin donations welcome)

What possession could you never leave behind if you had to leave your home, your country, your culture?

This One Thing presents 16 photographic portraits of local migrants showing one item they would have never left behind when they left their country, or an item which is very precious to them.

Each participant also shares their stories in an interview, inviting us to learn and celebrate the perspectives, experiences and journeys of people within the Bunbury community. Bring your ear phones to tune into the audio stories whilst viewing the exhibition at the museum.

Temporary display, Main Gallery

This year marks 35 years since the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery (otherwise known as 'BRAG') first opened its doors in Bunbury's iconic pink Convent building. 

We're celebrating with a display of five paintings selected from the City of Bunbury Art Collection, each depicting a well-known Bunbury location from the past or present. Step back in time and see if you can recognise the local places on display!


Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre Permanent Display

Step back in time through our main gallery to explore the heritage and history of the Bunbury region from pre-colonisation to today​​

The Classroom 

As the last classroom added to the building around 1914, this room has been preserved to represent the former history of the building as a school. The space is regularly used to host school programming, workshops and can be used for venue hire.
