Donations for the museum

History House Museum is always on the lookout for items that help to tell us of the people, businesses, organisations and events that have been a part of the history of the City of Armadale.

If you have an item you believe is important to the history of the City of Armadale please contact History House Museum on either (08) 9394 5670 or at info@armadale.wa.gov.au. We are interested in as much information about the item as possible such as who, where and when was the item used, who made the item and what event is it associated with.

History House Museum has limited space to store and exhibit the items that it collects. All items that are offered to the museum must meet the criteria laid out in the museum’s collection policy.

A few of the Museum's collection:

Commodore 64

This Commodore 64 computer was used by former shire engineer Ken Brown to learn how to use computers, which were being introduced into the workplace by the Armadale Kelmscott Shire in the mid-1980s. History House Museum is full of fascinating items!
