The Busselton Museum is housed in the one-hectare Old Butter Factory Precinct, which is nestled on the banks of the picturesque Vasse River. A replica of the old Busselton Jetty Rotunda enhances the vista. The building exhibits demonstrate Busselton’s diverse agricultural, forestry and maritime history with special attention focused on the famous 1920s Group Settlement Scheme and the local dairy industry. A major feature is the heritage-listed Old Butter Factory building which has many display rooms packed with photographs, equipment and memorabilia which trace the family, social, civic, commercial and maritime history of Busselton. Everything from agriculture to whaling, from crockery, clocks and cameras to sewing machines, travel and transport are included. The Museum opened in 1975 and is now run entirely by volunteers from the Busselton Historical Society. Tuesdays are set aside for this willing band of workers who maintain the artefacts, build new displays and continually strive to keep this collection relevant. There is lots to see, and visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it in the grounds by the Vasse River under the shade of the old Tuart trees....
