We had a short stay in Esperance from a ship. A small museum but full of well presented interesting things with some very creative corners. All cared for by volunteers.

What an amazing place! Something for everyone. It was much larger/more extensive than we expected. We stayed for over 2 hours, and could have stayed longer.

The section on maritime discovery and history is smaller than you'd expect, then it goes into a big but typical collection of country artefacts, including a train, but it does spread around interesting things on things like the skylab crash.
