Mount Magnet Mining and Pastoral Museum

The Museum houses the collection of the local Historical Society, including displays featuring local goldmining operations dating from 1891 and some of the sets from the Rabbit Proof Fence movie. The Boolgardie State Battery, a historic ore crushing facility, has been rebuilt onsite.

The Museum is open seven days per week from April to October, and on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the hotter months.

Admission fees apply. Entry is via the Visitor’s Centre.
