Located in the old School of Mines building at Zeehan, the West Coast Heritage Centre Zeehan commemorates the development of the West Coast area of Tasmania. The museum is located in the Main Street of Zeehan, and is open daily (except Christmas and Good Friday).

Railway exhibits include photographs, about 8 locomotives and a variety of rolling stock from the once complex network of rail and tramway systems in the area, of both 3'6" and 2'0" gauges. Other exhibits include old photographs, a large range of ore and mineral samples and working models.
