Colonial Room

Colonial Room

This was the original Guest Room, and features the four poster bed brought by the Drummond family to the colony, aboard the ‘Parmelia’, the first ship to bring settlers to Fremantle, WA, in 1829.

Used and passed down through the families to the present day and donated to the Museum by their descendants, this is one of the rare first pieces of furniture to arrive and still in existence.

The other displays in the room reflect childhood toys and activities, and some imagery of a few of the early ships.
