The creation of the Goldfields War Museum in the 1970’s was an initiative of prominent Kalgoorlie-Boulder residents with a strong contribution from volunteers.
The war museum includes a reception room with an operating Visitor Information Centre, the 10th Light Horse Room, a main Exhibition Hall and an outdoor exhibition area that houses the museum’s vehicle collection.
