Leave the 21st century behind as you enter the world of the 1840s at the elegant Matheson House, home of the award-winning Perth Museum. The stone dwelling was built in 1840 for the Honourable Roderick Matheson, a wealthy merchant and senator. Four period rooms have been carefully restored and furnished to reflect the lifestyle of the Matheson family.
