Overview

Old Court House Law Museum is Perth's oldest remaining public building and was the most prominent building in the early days of the Swan River Colony. From 1965 to1987 it served as the Law Society offices. In 1987 the building was refurbished and opened to the public. It now operates as a community education centre for legal history and one of the few law museums worldwide.

Schools and community groups can arrange a variety of activities including Supreme Court viewing, District Court viewing, Magistrates Court viewing, legal education programs and Old Courthouse Museum tours.
