Fremantle Stuff > Museums
There is no Fremantle Museum. There was one in the Fremantle Arts Centre, but it was closed when the (state) Maritime Museum opened on the South Wharf.
Apparently the first museum in Western Australia was in Fremantle, but I have yet to find out where and when.
This is in the 1853 Commissariat building, itself a historic building of great importance.
This is a 2002 building on the westernmost end of Victoria Quay, the southern wharf of Fremantle Harbour.
For the glorification of war. It should be converted to something useful.
This building used to house the Maritime Museum before it moved to its two new homes. There was also a Fremantle Museum here: unknown to me where that collection went.
