Norseman Historical Museum
This museum has one of the most unusual and quirky items you will ever see - ask to see the typewriter keys! (Story below). Norseman Historical Museum celebrates the Goldfields, mining and local history. The Museum is in the old School of Mines, built by Central Norseman Gold Mines. The rooms still feature many of the original fittings and cabinets. There is a diverse collection of items from the school’s assay labs, including brightly coloured chemicals used for testing ores. At the Museum you will find one of the main fuel tanks from Skylab, and a beautifully restored 1895 horse-drawn wagon. There is also an undercover shaded area to sit and relax before you explore what the rest of Norseman has to offer.
