Subiaco Museum

After spending a day in Subiaco, I visited the Subiaco Museum and also got to see one of the Bille Bob the Giant.

The Subiaco Museum was build in 1923 as the number 2 substation for the Subiaco Municipal Electric Light Supply. In 1975 the Subiaco Historical Society established a museum which in 1995 was taken custodianship by the City of Subiaco.

The interesting things I saw in the Subiaco Museum were the old chocolate boxes, tea boxes and other products being exhibited.

I saw assorted chocolate boxes from Nestle and Cadbury and some other brands as well as some tea boxes.

While wandering around Subiaco I also spotted Bille Bob the Giant in Subiaco Theatre Gardens. The wooden sculpture is part of the exhibition called ‘Giants of Mandurah’ by Thomas Danbo.

I had a really fun time in Subiaco visiting the Museum and the Subiaco Theatre Gardens and Mueller Park.
