May be a small museum but must check out just for Geraldton's history sake. Kids will love the 3D theatre and has a little play area if kiddies gets bored. Great array of souvenirs for keepsakes or presents.

We loved this museum the first thing we saw was the 3D film on finding of the Sydney and German ship off the coast, the rest of the museum had some great displays.

There are lots of other things in the Museum but I particularly liked the displays and the story of the Batavia, how it met its fate and the ordeals suffered by the passengers and crew. Well worth a visit
