The Army Museum of WA was established in 1977 and was relocated from Perth to the Artillery Barracks site in Burt Street Fremantle in 1995. This entire precinct has been heritage listed with several of the buildings having historical significance. The initial aim was to open a new gallery every year leading up to 2001, the year of the centenary of federation and the forming of the Australian Commonwealth Military Forces. Each gallery reflects the Army in Western Australia and Western Australian's service within the army from the colonial period through to the present day.The museum currently has five established galleries and a static display of vehicles and other military hardware located in the parade ground. In addition to the public displays of army memorabilia and artefacts a wide range of photographs, letters, general correspondence and other items of significance to Western Australian army history are also held by the museum.
