About Wireless Hill Museum


Wireless Hill Museum is situated within Wireless Hill Park in Ardross and hosts regular curated exhibitions, educational talks and Museum Learning Programs.

The museum building is located within the old engine room of the original Wireless Station established in 1912. The Wireless Station was one of Australia’s first links with radio technology, used for telecommunications during World War One and World War Two. Using Morse Code, the Station communicated with ships off the Australian coast using a mast that was 120 metres tall. The museum opened in 1979 and began as a repository of telecommunications related equipment, it currently exists to tell the story of the history of communications in WA as well as host regular curated museum and art exhibitions.

Current Exhibition

Number Please!

26 March 2022 to 16 October 2022.
 
Wireless Hill Museum is proud to present Number Please! – an exhibition about the history of the humble telephone in Western Australia.
 
Less than 100 years ago the household telephone did not exist, but today, over 90% of the world’s people have access to a mobile phone. Telephone technologies, styles and availability in Australia developed in step with technological and social change. Now telephones are an integral part of our society. 
 
Come and view an exhibition that features objects from the museum collection and celebrates 140 years of telephony in WA, provided by the Wireless Hill Museum in collaboration with the WA Historic Telecommunications Society.
