Corrigin Pioneer Museum

Corrigin's early settler history, including a large collection of working magnetos.

A large display for a small town! The Corrigin Pioneer Museum is an extensive collection held in several buildings on site, including a blacksmith's shop, a single-room school, farming machinery, household items, costume and fashion, military memorabilia and children’s toys. There is also a good collection of working magnetos (ignition system on early tractors and stationary engines), carefully restored by former long serving member Gordon Larke.
