Pioneer Village Museum

Step back in time to the 1900s and experience how people lived 100 years ago at Burnies Pioneer Village Museum, a charming c1900 Federation streetscape frozen in time.

See how ordinary people lived 100 years ago with a street full of stores and rooms that provide a window into lives past. A time when Burnie was prospering and reaping the benefits of the West Coast mineral boom. Each of the stores in the street features a trade or profession important to the functioning of a pioneering community. There is a saddlery and a boot makers shop, a blacksmiths forge, a printer, photographer and even a dentist.

Discover the personal treasures and memorabilia, tools of trade and goods that were made and sold in the era. It is easy to get lost in the charm and detail of the grocery store and boarding house or be relieved that as far as kitchen and laundry appliances go, things have moved on significantly over the past 100 years.
