Panorama taken inside the Francis Burt Law Education Centre and Museum. Housed in the oldest public building in Perth and located next door to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, the law museum is one of very few of its kind in the world.
Serving as both a museum for visitors and an education and research center, it houses documents relating to the development of law in Western Australia and has objects dating back as early as 1616. These include journals, photographs, documents and illustrations, legal regalia, personal effects and items of evidence used in notable trials.
Named in honour of Sir Francis Theodore Page Burt AC KCMG QC who served as Chief Justice of Western Australia and as Governor of Western Australia, a war veteran who had served in both the Royal Australian Air Force and Navy, and for whom upon his death in 2004 at the age of 86, the rare and most esteemed honour of a State Funeral was held.
