The Museum of Perth chronicles the social, cultural, political and architectural history of Western Australia's capital. The Museum was created by the Perth History Association Inc. It started as an online project and now with its physical presence operates on a not-for-profit basis.
A permanent part of the museum is a concise version of Perth's history going back more than 40,000 years. It was written by West Australian author David Whish-Wilson.
The museum also plays host to other locally inspired exhibitions that change on a regular basis and makes use of a micro-cinema.
