Timber Museum Manjimup Heritage Park
As you walk through this museum, with its high curved walls lined with slender strips of hand-cut tuart, it is like being within a tree, surrounded by beautiful wood grain. The building was designed by Marshall Clifton, a significant Western Australian architect. He never saw the final realisation of his designs as it was built in 1977, two years after he died. However, his vision and skill continue to shine in this beautifully designed building. The story of the timber industry is told in different informative displays which includes the voices of a range of people for whom the timber industry is important and topical.
Visitors can also see the Manjimup Steam Museum, celebrating the use of steam power in saw mills and how it helped to improve processes and speed up work.
