A Night at the Museum

16/04/2021 - 17/04/2021 A Night at the Museum

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit the Army Museum of Western Australia after dark? Join us for two very special evenings on 16 and 17 April when we open our doors for the very first time at our Night at the Museum events.

See demonstrations, amazing objects, visit our Victoria Cross gallery and military displays, participate in hands on activities and hear the Army Band of Perth.

Established in 1977, the Australian Army Museum of Western Australia is now housed in the heritage listed Artillery Barracks in Burt Street, Fremantle. The museum currently has six established galleries and a static display of vehicles and other military hardware located on the parade ground and in adjacent buildings.

In addition to the public displays of army memorabilia and artefacts a wide range of photographs, letters, general  correspondence and other items of significance to Western Australian army history are also held by the museum. Each gallery reflects the Army in Western Australia and Western Australians’ service within the army from the colonial period through to the present day.

Opening times will be between 6:00pm (1800 hours) and 10:00pm (2200 hours).

Entry fees will be $15 for adults – $10 for seniors – $10 for children between 6 and 17 years of age and $35 for a family group of two adults and three children.
