Revolutions Transport Museum is much more than the State’s only land transport museum.

As the home of the Whiteman Collection – a diverse array of objects collected by Lew Whiteman and bequeathed to the WA State Government – the museum tells the story of the evolution of land transport in Western Australia and the impact it has had on the economic, social and cultural development of the state.

While the main exhibition has a transport focus, the collection also contains a wide variety of decorative items, memorabilia and historical objects collected by Lew Whiteman during his lifetime in the area. Lew Whiteman owned, farmed and developed some of the land that now forms Whiteman Park and Revolutions aims to bring his local story to life. Showcases and the Collection Store window displays are changed regularly throughout the year, bringing many of these smaller objects out on display and promising something different to see and explore in this family-friendly, accessible space.

Interactive exhibits give a sense of travel in the past and showcase changing technologies. Visitors can climbing aboard a horse-drawn buggy, sit in the drivers seat of our EJ Holden, step into the ZA Rail Car to see how we travelled in bygone eras and more.

Revolutions also captures some of the earliest forms of travel in the vast state, recognising the importance of Aboriginal stories: the captivating Singing the Train exhibit journeys the Pilbara by rail through the voice of the Nyamal people and is not to be missed.

Digitising objects in the Collection
Digital collection

You can now search Revolution's growing digital catalogue of objects on Collections WA and learn about some of the items that are normally in storage and out of public view. Collections WA is an online platform where you can discover unique cultural, creative and community stories from WA collections. Digitising our collection prolongs the future of these historic objects by creating a digital version of it for future generations, while also providing access to objects across the wider community. The museum team are regularly updating the catalogue as they undertake research and accessioning of the many items in the Whiteman Collection.
