Leonora Gwalia Historical Museum

Gwalia Museum was opened in 1972 as the Gwalia Historical Gallery in the former Sons of Gwalia Mine Office by an enthusiastic group of locals keen to preserve the history of the mine and Gwalia. Over the years, restoration work has been done on many of the cottages, while the former mine office houses a huge collection of objects and photographs showcasing the life and times of the mine and the people who worked there.
