Behind the Scenes: Fremantle Prison Museum Collection

Join Fremantle Prison’s curatorial team for an exclusive behind the scenes look at the Fremantle Prison’s Museum Collection.

Fremantle Prison holds a diverse collection of approximately 12,000 historic objects. The collection spans the operational life of the Prison from 1855 through to 1991, and has cultural heritage significance due to its association with Fremantle Prison and Western Australia’s history.

Fremantle Prison’s curatorial team will take you behind the scenes into the work spaces of the Prison’s museum collection, discussing how cultural objects are cared for at Perth’s only World Heritage site. You will learn how objects are cleaned and catalogued, and then explore some of the Collection’s hidden treasures in the Collection storage areas.

Registration for this event is essential as numbers are limited. Please contact Fremantle Prison via email on events@fremantleprison.com.au or by phone on (08) 9336 9205.
