Mundaring District Museum is housed in one of the classrooms of the former Mundaring School at 7225 Great Eastern Highway in Mundaring. The Museum shares the former school building with the Mundaring Visitor Centre.

Here you can see a display on the history of the area from before the arrival of Europeans through the first settlements and industries to the present.

Our current exhibition interprets the history of the Shire of Mundaring through the many items crafted from, by, and within its landscape. The exhibition includes short aural recordings and static displays. From the granite slabs quarried at Mahogany Creek for the Perth GPO to the beautiful stained-glass windows made in Greenmount by Gowers & Brown, the range of building materials, foods, domestic objects, artworks, and inventions made locally is extraordinary. The labour and creativity of people in the past, and in the present, is acknowledged in the array of objects displayed, and in the stories of the individuals who made them.
