Patrick Taylor Cottage Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Built prior to 1832, the Patrick Taylor Cottage Museum stands on the original Lot Two, of the first survey of the Albany town site and is shown on a map dated 1832.

Now a museum, the cottage is one of the few examples of architecture of the military regime, two years prior to the establishment of the Swan River colony.

One of the oldest buildings remaining in Albany, a section of the wattle and daub construction is exposed in one of the rooms and oak shingles are still visible under the corrugated iron roof. Over 2,000 items are on display, including furniture, glassware, china, clothing, utensils and photos from the Albany district.
