At the museum, you can read about the unique natural and social history of Western Australia, and everything that makes it great!
Each exhibit covers a different theme or event, and it's worth allowing a few hours to really explore everything it has to offer.
Kids - do you know much about the early settlers and convicts of the region? Now is your chance! You can also explore the unique natural landscape, fauna and flora of the region too. It's pretty special!

There are permanent exhibitions within the museum, so you can always go back to your favorite. Kids can enjoy hands on, interactive fun at the Discovery Centre, or kids can experience learning in an old one teacher school room. Kids - t's must different to what you are used to these days!
