Over 3000 Goldfields people have served in each of the First and Second World Wars and in smaller conflicts from the Boer War to present day. The Goldfields region has a rich military history that is reflected in the museum’s collection.
As a result of the 2010 earthquake, home of the Goldfields War Museum, Burt Street, Boulder was badly damaged and was subsequently relocated to the 1st Floor, Kalgoorlie Town Hall. There you will see thought provoking displays of personal artifacts showcasing the involvement of Goldfields people in times of war.
Our new museum will showcase the uniquely interesting stories of Goldfields people who have endured the hardships of war. The Goldfields War Museum is looking to acquire military objects, photographs and documents relating to men and women from the Goldfields region that served in times of war or participated in home front activities.
Opening Hours - CLOSED DECEMBER 2018
Due to the relocation to our new facility the Goldfields War Museum will be closed to the public from Monday 3rd December 2018 and will be re-open on Monday 7th January 2019. Our new home will be at the Boulder Town Hall.
Our email will remain the same however there will be some delay in responding due to the relocation. We apologise for the inconvenience.
