Federation Street at Burnie Regional Museum

Collage of photos of Museum collections

The Burnie Regional Museum’s collections represent the history of Burnie and the surrounding North West region. From the time the first Europeans ventured out from Port Sorell in the mid-1820s to explore the wilderness of the North West, up to the present day.

 

Federation Street

Wander the charming Federation Street and see how ordinary people lived more than 110 years ago. Discover the lifestyles and aspirations of our forebears through rooms that are alive with personal treasures, memorabilia and tools of the trade.

It is easy to get lost in the charm and detail of the general store or be relieved that, as far as kitchen and laundry appliances go, things have moved on! Each store features a trade or profession important to a pioneering community. There is a saddler and boot maker’s shop, a blacksmith’s forge, printer, photographer and even a dentist! Each is based on an actual business that once existed in Burnie.
