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. After undergoing cleaning and registration, the objects are stored in one of three on-site storage facilities, including the publically visible storage facility which will be visited during this exclusive behind the scenes tour.
