    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Art Gallery was founded in 1895 and was opened as part of the Perth Museum. For many years the institution was known as the Public Library, Museum and Art Gallery of WA. A contract for a new art gallery was signed in 1977and the building was opened in 1979. The highlight of their extensive collection is art of Western Australia, Australian Indigenous art and the art of the world.

    Western Australian Museum
    I was really impressed with this museum. There were many different areas to explore, such as, the History of western Australia, Diamonds to Dinosaurs, and one of the only megamouths specimens in existance.

    Local Hangings

    The prison, which was not only Perth’s first, but one of the oldest buildings in the city, remained in use up until 1888. It was the favourite place for hangings.

    The Old Courtroom

    The old Gaol has been extensively restored. You can see the old courtroom which is largely unchanged in design except for a narrow staircase that led to it which has been replaced with another.

    This old building on the grounds of the museum complex is a reconstruction of an old Victorian workman’s cottage on Roe Street. The cottage was officially opened in 1993 by the Mayor of Perth.
