The Power of Purpose: The story of the Burnie Regional Museum by Peter Mercer | HB | Limited Edition
The Story of the Burnie Regional Museum, 1942-2014
This book tells of the dedication of a small number of people who realised that the wealth of a community is far more than money or buildings or cleared land, people who realised that it was essential to preserve the physical artefacts, the information about and the knowledge of the past before it was lost.
Central to this process was the birth of the Pioneer Village Museum at the regional centre of Burnie. This was, at the time, the only museum in West and North-West. Now the Burnie Regional Museum, it is a celebration of the region’s history.
