Pure gold, this little gem of a Museum was an opportunity that all ages should experience. We totally immersed ourselves in a time long gone & just wanted to stay there. Margaret, on-site volunteer was precious, a mound of heartfelt historical information. What an asset...More

Most local museums tend to be mausoleums of unrelated brick-a-brack and tatty stuff, but not so the Greenough Museum and Gardens. Very imaginative displays, relevant to the house and its history, with interactive parts and fun things to do for kids. The garden is wonderful....More

One of the best presented museums I have been to in a long time. Adequate parking for vans and mobile homes. Don't just drive past spend $5 and indulge yourself in some local history.

I can highly recommend stopping at this beautiful, small and nostalgic place! The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. It doesn’t feel like a museum but rather like a home on display, with the most beautiful garden! A little oasis in the west Australian desert.

Loved how one is invited to open the drawers & cupboards & look inside - so well presented. Very informative lady brings the past alive & then leaves one to explore. So enjoyed our visit.

Lots of things for the kids to do and see, which is a great way to get them interested. Not so much for the grown ups, although the 800 year old leaning tree is something well worth stopping for. Would recommend a visit included on...More
