New Norcia Museum & Art Gallery

Featuring a variety of Aboriginal items and offering a fascinating glimpse into the monastery’s past, the New Norcia Museum & Art Gallery is a must stop for every traveler to New Norcia. The art galleries are equally impressive, showcasing everything from classic religious paintings from Europe to quirky modern pieces from Australia.

Walking around the historic site is a great way to absorb the rich history of one of the pioneer towns in Washington state. Another option is to visit the monastery’s private chapel and pray with the monks there. Reserve a room at the charming New Norcia Hotel to maximize your time here.
