図書館や博物館（工事中でしたが）、アートギャラリー等が集まっているブロックにありました。中心部からもパース駅からも近いので立ち寄り易い場所でした。 more »Block library and Museum (under construction), but are art galleries, etc. It was easy to drop both from Central Perth railway station near place.
Had a fantastic couple or exhibitions on. Not for some as there was nudity. Perhaps check before you take your kids. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good ambiance and a great building. Perfectly location. I'll be coming again soon for sure.
They had two rather bizarre exhibits when I was there in February 2019. I'm glad the entry was free because I only stayed about 5 minutes. Hopefully the next time I go the exhibits will be more to my liking. Other people may find it fascinating though so be sure to stop by
