  • The building looks exactly as it was constructed in the early 1900s. The surrounding skyscrapers may have engulfed this structure, however his history still remains, like wine, the older the better . Walking into this historical monument, you will be amazed that you have travelled back in time. The 1st floor has panels and display as well as a video clip of the history of the monumental structure. Don't forget to try the fully functional lift, like in the old movie which works too. Many thanks to Greg, who is volunteering his services to tourist to this amazing building .
  • The lobby was a bit smelly. If you can put it past that, it was very enjoyable. Made my visit to Perth well worth while! Thanks. Ps I enjoyed the local exibit
