Hood Penn Museum
This quirky museum includes several very realistic mannequins, including the friendly bartender from the old Edna May Hotel Bar! The collection was acquired as a donation from the Hood-Penn family which previously owned the Burracoppin Store, and includes Chris Penn's impressive bottle collection, acquired as a result of walking around Burracoppin. You can learn about the gold rush and mining history of Westonia, which was settled in 1910. The Museum features a variety of scenes highlighting early life in the shire, such as the pub, doctor's office, blacksmith/farm workshop and shop/hardware store. Visitors can enter a makeshift mine shaft that shakes to simulate blasting and rocks falling underground.
