In 1862 the first school between Perth and Fremantle was built on Freshwater Bay. This building is now part of the core of the museum site and is owned and managed by the Town of Claremont.
The Museum collects and preserves items associated with the district of Claremont and Freshwater Bay, including oral histories and photographs. The research facility provides researchers with information on Claremont's history and the education program for schools is designed to fit the curriculum.
With a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions, the Museum offers a pleasant, stimulating visit for groups or individuals.
