Army Museum of Western Australia

The Army Museum of Western Australia collects, preserves and exhibits the history of the Australian Army in Western Australia. It is located in the Freemantle Artillery Barracks which were built between 1910 and 1913 to house the artillerymen tasked with the defence of the Port of Fremantle.

First established in 1977, the museum’s galleries depict the history of Western Australian service members overseas and on the home front, from colonial times through to war and peacekeeping, including current operations.

Donations of memorabilia and historical artefacts are gratefully accepted in accordance with the museum’s collection policy.  

The museum relies heavily on the efforts of volunteers. Please contact the museum for further information.
