Kimberley Heritage Museum

Discover Kimberley's Past

Kimberley’s history dates back to the discovery of galena at the North Star mine, now the location of the Kimberley Alpine Resort.

With the subsequent discovery of high grade minerals, the North Star mine became known as the Sullivan Mine. The Sullivan Mine was an enormous deposit of ore and quickly became the largest lead and zinc mine in the world. It was also Kimberley’s largest employer for nearly 100 years.

To learn more about the history of Kimberley, visit the Kimberley Heritage Museum at 105 Spokane Street, in the downtown pedestrian area above the Kimberley Public Library.
