Museum of Performing Arts

If you love theatre and memorabilia is your thing... then a make haste to the Museum of Performing Arts for a fascinating look through theatre history.

Throughout its colourful and exciting history, His Majesty's Theatre has hosted a myriad of performance genres - from ballet to contemporary dance, opera to musical theatre, vaudeville to stand-up comedy, Shakespearean drama to pantomime and much more. 

To honour this rich history, His Majesty's Theatre opened the Museum of Performing Arts in 2001.

Items such as glamorous costumes, photographs, press clippings, scripts, scores and other historic pieces are publicly exhibited at the Museum, Downstairs at the Maj, with a new exhibition to view every six to eight weeks. 

The oldest item in the Museum collection dates back to 1854 - a beautiful silk programme from a Perth performance of amateur theatricals.
