Burnie Regional Museum’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Opening Hours
Published on 15 October 2021
The Burnie Regional Museum opened on 1st November 1971 as the Pioneer Village Museum, with ‘Federation Street’ featuring as the main attraction.
Peter Mercer recreated a town streetscape to depict what life in Burnie might have been like at the turn of the twentieth century. Federation Street not only embraces a time of prosperity and growth in Burnie at Federation, but also represents the hard work and resilience of the everyday farmer, resident and business operator.
Earlier this year, Council announced a change in direction for Burnie’s cultural precinct – where the city’s art gallery and museum would combine with its function centre to create a new cultural space. The Burnie Regional Museum has been closed for this refurbishment. However to mark and celebrate 50 years since the opening of the Pioneer Village Museum, the Friends of the Burnie Regional Museum, in conjunction with the Burnie City Council, are opening Federation Street to the public for four days in November.
The museum will be open from Tuesday 9th to Friday 12th November 2021. To take advantage of daylight saving and convenience of families, there are three, 45 minute sessions each day starting at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm.
