Two exclusive exhibitions
Thu 13 Sep 2018 – Sun 9 Dec 2018

9:30am – 5:00pm
WA Maritime Museum

You are invited to view two exquisite exhibitions that celebrate Western Australia’s French connections.

These two exhibitions are exclusively showing at the WA Maritime Museum from Thursday 13 September.

Entry to French Explorers in Western Australia is free. Museum entry fees apply.

The Art of Science: Baudin’s Voyagers 1800-1804

For the first time since they were completed over 200 years ago this exhibition brings original paintings and drawings from the Museum of Natural History in Le Havre, France to Australia.

Paintings and drawings by Baudin’s artists were created on the shores and off the coasts of Australia capturing some of the first European views of Australian animals, landscapes and very first portraits of Aboriginal people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this exhibition includes names, images, objects and works of people who are deceased.

Return to Australia: Freycinet 1818

Discover the science and stories behind this amazing journey as we commemorate the 200th anniversary of Freycinet’s expedition to Western Australia in the Uranie.

As Commander of a scientific expedition taking him across the world, Louis de Freycinet arrived in Shark Bay on 12 September 1818.

Other than his official obligations, he had a secret motive — to retrieve the historically significant pewter plate erected there in 1697 by Dutch mariner Willem de Vlamingh.
