Perth has a short but rich history that has been captured in the many museums around the city and surrounding suburbs. Best of all, the vast majority of them are child-friendly, so you can take the kids along to learn all about the history of our state.

Perth and surrounds

The Perth CBD is simply full of museums to take the kids on an educational tour. While the West Australian Museum is currently closed for renovations, you’ll find plenty of other historical attractions to get the kids attention.
