  • The Army Museum of Western Australia is located at Artillery Barracks Fremantle. Well worth a visit if interested in military history, beware the museum has limited opening times. Excellent collection of artefacts spread across two levels of the Main Artillery Barracks building. Outside there is also a large collection of artillery pieces and military vehicles.
  • Good museum and entry fee very reasonable and a lot on show the only downside is street parking
