Mission Statement

Mandurah Community Museum seeks to serve its community by being a leading local museum of social and urban history in the West Australian Regional environment.


In 1986 the Historical Society established the Museum in Dalrymple’s Schoolroom. They managed and maintained it until the City of Mandurah took over in 2001. Advice on issues relating to the management of the Mandurah Community Museum and its programs is presented to Council by the Museum Advisory Committee.


The Museum’s daily operations are overseen by the Museum Development Officer supported by a team of dedicated and indispensable volunteers. A part-time Museum Education Officer is employed to develop programs and resources reflecting the museum’s collection.
