The latest stakeholder update can be viewed here.
The museum showcases the heritage of energy (past, present and future) inclusive of the Western Australia World of Energy collection, through modern exhibitions, engaging displays and interactive building features. The museum encompasses educational and interpretative experiences sought by local, regional, national and international visitors alike. The café has replaced the existing aged café in the park and the visitor servicing centre will be a new point of contact for visitors to the park, town and greater region.
The tender for construction was awarded to Civilcon. Site works commenced on 29 October 2018 and continued until late 2019 with an opening in December 2019. A sod turning ceremony was held on 5th November 2018.
The museum building and fitout is complete and we are currently working hard to have the museum pieces in place for the opening in December. The Visitor Centre furnishing is continuing as is the cafe and it is anticpated they will both be complete for the opening.
