Mu­seum marks his­toric oc­ca­sion

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

WANNEROO Re­gional Mu­seum hit a mile­stone af­ter wel­com­ing more than 100,000 vis­i­tors through its doors since open­ing.

The mu­seum opened in 2009 at the Wanneroo Li­brary and Cul­tural Cen­tre and since then has of­fered com­mu­nity mem­bers a range of in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays and ex­hibits.

The mile­stone was reached be­fore Christ­mas last year, with the mu­seum av­er­ag­ing more than 1000 vis­i­tors each month.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said it was fan­tas­tic that more than 100,000 peo­ple had seen what the Wanneroo Re­gional Mu­seum had to of­fer.

“Wanneroo has such a unique his­tory, and our mu­seum cer­tainly paints the pic­ture of what life was like for our tra­di­tional own­ers, early set­tlers and pi­o­neers,” she said.

“There are al­ready some ex­cit­ing projects planned for 2018, in­clud­ing a chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity trail for the April school hol­i­days called ‘The Way Wanneroo Was’ and a dis­play com­mem­o­rat­ing the cen­te­nary of the Armistice that ended World War I, in Novem­ber.”

There are also plans to re­de­velop the mi­gra­tion ex­hi­bi­tion.
