The Motor Museum of Western Australia
The Motor Museum of Western Australia opened its doors to the public on December 21st, 1994 and was officially opened by the Hon, Richard Lewis M.L.A. Minister for Planning & Heritage on April 2, 1995. The museum was dedicated to the late Percy Markam 1913-1994 in appreciation of his contribution to the historic vehicle movement in Western Australia.
The Motor Museum of Western Australia is governed by the Motor Museum of WA Trust (Inc) and is manned by volunteers drawn from the WA community. It houses one of the largest collections of privately owned motor vehicles and motoring memorabilia in Australia. The collection of over 200 cars and motorcycle vehicles including examples of motor vehicles dating from the early 1900s through to the present day and provide an excellent visual timeline of the rich motoring heritage that has helped shape the state of Western Australia as we know it today.
In addition to the diverse range of passenger vehicles on display, the Museum houses an excellent collection of motorcycles and some 6000 scale models, many being recently donated to the Museum under the Cultural Gift Scheme. The Museum is for the most part self-funded and operates with a limited budget on a not-for-profit basis. It relies largely on revenue received from entry fees, donations, and assistance from organizations such as the Council of Motoring Clubs and affiliated car clubs. It also relies heavily on an army of fabulous volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the Museum is kept open to the public seven days a week.
