In a building shared by the Manjimup Visitor Centre and Park Café, it’s the perfect place to stop, discover something new and begin your Southern Forests adventure.

The Collection

The museum is the new re-imagined home of the former World of Energy collection and features some of Western Australia’s first generating sets, examples of early electric vehicles and a range of early electrical domestic appliances.

The collection has adopted by many volunteers from the region who conserve and preserve the objects to ensure they can be enjoyed by future generations. Interested in volunteering with the collection? Contact the Shire’s Community Services team on 9771 7777.

For Visitors on the Autism Spectrum

Before entering the museum there is a large foyer with seating and access to toilets. Upon entering the museum there is a dark space with feature lighting and changing visuals. Occasional noise and light changes may be overwhelming to a particularly sensitive visitor, however there are more open spaces as you walk through the exhibition where there are less changes in audio and visuals.

There is a children’s area, Bright Sparks, in the corner of the exhibition that provides reading nooks for children (and their parents/guardians) to escape, along with a supply or books and games.

Outside the museum is a large grassed area and playground. Visitors are welcome to leave the museum if they need a break and come back when they are ready to explore some more that day.

The museum offers child size noise cancelling headphones upon request at reception. These are available to borrow, free of charge.
