Planning a school visit?

The Broome Historical Museum will take students on a voyage of discovery through Broome’s rich history. They will explore topics such as the pearling industry, both World Wars, including the tragic air attack in 1942, and Broome’s multicultural society.

The visit is a self-guided tour; however, our volunteers are always willing to assist and share their knowledge.

Visits by school groups to the Broome Museum are free of charge. Donations of a gold coin by students towards the running costs of the Museum are gratefully received.

For more information on planning your excursion please see our school visit policy.

We have resources available that align to the Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum.



The secondary museum visit worksheet aligns to the history strand of the Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum, particularly at Year 9 & 10 with teacher notes available.


A basic worksheet is also available, as are simple look and find quiz in three levels, non-reader, beginning reader and lower primary.
