Discover the history, technology and people of Western Australia’s first major industry.

Discover the history of the State’s timber industry and learn how it continues to play an important role in the life of people living in the Southern Forest region at the award winning State Timber Museum. Originally opened in 1977, the museum honours the impact the timber and forestry industry has had on the lives of Western Australians and the local area.

Award Winning

In 2018 the State Timber Museum was refurbished and the interior displays replaced as part of the Manjimup Town Centre Revitalisation Stage II. In 2019 the museum was awarded a Museums and Galleries National Award for a Permanent Exhibition or Gallery Fit Out.

For Visitors on the Autism Spectrum

Direct access to the museum is from the outside. As you enter the museum a motion activated speaker will play nature sounds. This is a short recording. As you move through the museum the space is open with interpretation panels against the wall. The lighting is general, soft and unobtrusive.

There is an audio nook where visitors can listen on headphones to people talk about the timber industry.

In the centre of the museum is a kid’s space with cushions, games and books.

Every half an hour a speaker will sound a steam whistle recording. This is very short but can be loud.

At the far end of the museum a TV plays a short video on the timber industry.

The Manjimup Heritage Park offers child size noise cancelling headphones upon request at Manjimup Visitor Centre. These are available to borrow, free of charge.
