The facility includes:

  • Functional and flexible lighting design for 200 seat theatrette/auditorium.  WGE also provided all the audio visual services and stage lighting
  • An impressive travelling exhibition gallery
  • Thematic galleries
  • A large function centre
  • Back-of-house support facilities including glass lift and larger scissor lift
  • Specialist lighting design of museum displays and external building facades to accentuate the elegance of the building lines
  • Large hoist for the transportation of large displays
  • “Welcome Walls” in the forecourt that list immigrants that arrived by ship via Fremantle port

The museum is considered an iconic building that WGE are proud to have contributed to.
