Museum in a Box 

Museum in a box

From 1 April 2016 onwards

Great Court, Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre

FREE, to local schools in the Wanneroo Area. 
The City of Wanneroo is thrilled to launch our very own Museum in a Box program for 2016. This exciting outreach program has been designed for use by educational institutions throughout Perth. We have designed and curated four different boxes, each addressing a different person or subject connected to World War I and the Wanneroo area. Students will learn about Richard Smales who died on the Somme and Vincent Berriman who was fortunate enough to return home. We also cover the important role of the Red Cross on the home front and examine the interesting life of AANS Nurse, Sr. Anne Donnell. Each box contains real museum specimens and artefacts, images, DVDs, CDs, books and educational resources. 

Bookings are now available to borrow these boxes for use in schools. Please contact Rosslyn Marshall on 9405 5905 or email

Starting up again in July and running every Monday from the 18th, our new Museum program has been designed to introduce your little ones aged between 2 and 5 years to the history of Wanneroo in a fun and interactive way. We will be exploring different themes throughout the program via craft activities, play and storytelling beginning with the 'Early Settlers' of Wanneroo. This program continues on from our very successful, and hugely popular, Toddler Tuesday that operated in 2015.
