WANNEROO Regional Museum hit a milestone by welcoming more than 100,000 visitors through its doors since opening.

The museum opened in 2009 at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre and since then has offered community members a range of interactive displays and exhibits.

The milestone was reached before Christmas last year, with the museum averaging more than 1000 visitors each month.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said it was fantastic that more than 100,000 people had seen what the Wanneroo Regional Museum had to offer.

“Wanneroo has such a unique history, and our museum certainly paints the picture of what life was like for our traditional owners, early settlers and pioneers,” she said.

“There are already some exciting projects planned for 2018, including a children’s activity trail for the April school holidays called ‘The Way Wanneroo Was’ and a display commemorating the centenary of the Armistice that ended World War I, in November.”

There are also plans to redevelop the migration exhibition, which will feature people’s objects and stories about migrating to Wanneroo.
