Butlers Garage is a significant piece of Kulin’s Heritage, particularly that’s associated with the development of the agricultural industry and thus the identity of the region. The architecture of the building is a fine example of construction during the Depression years. During the mid 1920's WM Butler & Co of Wickepin established a machinery agency business in Kulin. In the late 1920's WH (Bill) Butler (WM's son) established in Kulin and took over the agency, developing it further with the construction of the garage on this site. The agencies functioned continuously right up until 1994. The garage has been restored and houses the Kulin Museum. The Museum is currently open on a Saturday morning from 8.30am – 12pm. If the museum is closed please contact (08) 9880 1024 to arrange a visit.
Enjoy the architecture of the buildings dating from 1913, the G117 class steam locomotive circa 1987, the signal box housing 95 levers. Displays of Merredin's railway history. Photographic register of Pioneer women of the area. Also enjoy the attractive garden setting where you can feed goldfish in the ponds.

The huge building was part of the No.5 Base Ordnance Depot (5BOD) which was considered to be the largest storage facility for Army Ordnance in Western Australia at that time. Built at a total cost of approx. 10 million pounds it is believed to be the largest timber clad building in the southern hemisphere, featuring a distinctive saw tooth roof.
The Museum is run by local volunteers and relies heavily on the support of the Shire of Nungarin and donations from the public to maintain and expand exhibits. Many of the the items on display have been donated.
