Collections

All ages will love the beautifully restored Dalrymple schoolroom, Mandurah’s first Government School, built in 1898. The building was extended to house the town's police station in later years and the courthouse and cells can still be visited today. You’ll also see a life size model of the unique and enormous Megamouth shark that was washed up on the Town Beach in 1988.
