Claude De Bernales was a successful mining entrepreneur who made his fortunes on the Kalgoorlie-Boulder goldfields. In this display, the opulent Kalgoorlie and Perth office and boardrooms have been recreated in all their grandeur.

Note the difference between the typical miner’s cottage – found nearby in the Museum grounds – and these elegant quarters.
