History Mystery Family Fun DayHistorical Society of Cockburn


History Mystery Family Fun Day

During the school holidays come for family fun History Mystery tours and activity sheets.

Follow the trails, complete pictures and see demonstrations of washing machines grandma may have used to do the laundry. Washing clothes used to be hard work! This is a great interactive activity ideal for school age kids and their families. Groups welcome by appointment.

Staff and volunteers will be working to set up a new display featuring local schools’ histories in the Wagonhouse. Explore the early migrant domestic machinery and the ongoing pioneer board and stories of early settlers.

Make a day of it and bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful and incredibly relaxing Manning Park surrounding the Museum or try exploring the Davilak House and Farm Complex Ruins located within the park which are in the process of conservation.

Enquiries to museum@cockburn.wa.gov.au or phone 08 9418 6648.
