There are men’s, women’s and accessible toilets within the Museum building. The Paisley Centre Public Toilets are also located on the outside of the building. There are no baby-changing facilities within the Museum. The closest baby-changing facilities are within the Bunbury Centrepoint Shopping Centre.
There are plenty of cafes and food outlets close to the Museum. We ask that food and drink is not consumed in the Museum building as it can attract pests that damage our fragile collection items.
A visual story is a step-by-step guide to visiting the Museum to help you plan your trip.
Visiting the Museum should be an enjoyable experience for everyone! We try to avoid too many rules, but there are a few ‘Museum manners’ we expect visitors to follow. These are for everyone’s comfort and safety, and to protect irreplaceable collection objects and the 130 year-old building.
- You are welcome to talk, laugh, cry, wonder, get excited and be imaginative.
- We ask you not to bring food or drink, or touch objects unless the sign says you can do so.
- Photographs and selfies are welcome, but not selfie sticks or commercial photography. No flash please.
