The AHS is in the process of uploading our collection online to view – offering a fascinating insight into Albany’s history.

The Albany Historical Society has collaborated with Collections WA to make our historic collection available to view online.

We are in the process of uploading our entire catalog on a constant basis, and as well as viewing our collection, Collections WA hosts the collections of many other museums, historical societies and organisations as well, and is most definitely worth checking out!

You can read more about our collection here, or, you can access our collection at Collections WA here.

You can also access our collection via Trove here.
