The Gallery | The Old Customs House Gallery


Our Gallery was established in the historical building The Old Customs House The waterfront and docks once served government Customs Agents, and cargo inspectors, who investigated the freighters bringing goods into the copper mining town of Britannia Beach.
For over 20 years Milada Dohnalek (1919 – 2006) and two of her four children took care of the gallery which with the time changed into the gift store
Milada offered to the tourists traveling highway 99 her sweaters, hats, felt, but also ceramics and canvases with bouquets of flowers full of folk flavour of Czech Republic, where she was born. Michael Dohnalek has been famous for his photos with an Anvil Island taken through kitchen window and Kathy Dohnalek for her cooper jewellery with a beach glass . We still carry some of native art and silver jewellery with semiprecious stones which they collected.
