Located in a beautifully restored two storey house alongside Maley’s Mill, the Pioneer Museum offers an insight into a bygone era.
The homestead was built between 1862 and 1880 for John Maley, miller, storekeeper, hotel proprietor, entrepreneur and father of 14 children.
Maley was known locally as the King of the Flats. His wife, Elizabeth was the daughter of the first German migrants to Western Australia. The atmosphere of their era is recreated in the 11 room homestead.
The award winning collection includes original furnishings, hand made lacework, musical instruments, clothing, children’s toys and items of everyday use.
In addition, the out-houses and grounds display early farm machinery and relics from the region. The museum also houses an extensive historical photographic collection which can provide information about Greenough settlers and agriculture. The museum shop stocks an extensive collection of local history books and souvenirs. Greenough Pioneer Museum fact sheets are also available in German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Japanese.
We welcome self drive travellers and small and large group tours who are free to enjoy our garden seating for self provided meals. Guided group tours are available on request.
