Bottles at the Western Australian Museum

Gambar ini diambil pada 9 September 2005 di Western Australian Museum yang terletak di Perth Cultural Centre. Seperti yang telah dipamerkan di muzium ini, botol juga merupakan 'artefact' sejarah yang tidak dipandang remeh. Kumpulan botol yang paling saya suka sudah tentulah aerated water dan cordial bottles. Saya pernah bercadang untuk membuat 'display' seperti ini untuk koleksi peribadi saya, nampaknya impian masih belum tercapai! Mungkin anda boleh melakukannya :)

The state's museum is a six-headed beast, with branches also in Fremantle, Albany, Geraldton and Kalgoorlie. This one includes dinosaur, mammal, butterfly and bird galleries, a children's discovery centre , and excellent displays covering Indigenous and colonial history.

In the courtyard, set in its own preservative bath, is Megamouth, a curious-looking species of shark with a soft, rounded head. Only about five of these benign creatures have ever been found; this one beached itself near Mandurah, south of Perth.

The museum complex includes Perth's original gaol, built in 1856 and used until 1888 – the site of many hangings.
