Meet the Museum: The Old Perth Gaol

March 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$8 – $10
Curious to find out more about what goes on behind the scenes at the Museum? At the heart of WA Museum Boola Bardip stands the Old Perth Gaol, the site of our first Museum building, and a space with a very complex, and often dark history.
 
Despite this, it is a space with very little interpretation. Join Visitor Services Officer Bec Weldon in exploring the history of this heritage-listed space, from its lifespan as a colonial Gaol and use as an early 19th and 20th-century museum, to its contemporary use, and the changing meanings which underlie its occupation.
 
Cultural warning: We advise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander visitors that this talk involves a walk-through of the Gaol space, and discussions about the forms of colonial violence which occurred in the space.
