VISIT THE ICONIC COURTHOUSE BUILDING THAT HOSTS THE COSSACK MUSEUM 

This free museum is currently located within the two-storey courthouse building at Cossack. The courthouse building was built in 1895. Designed by an Italian born, British architect, George Temple Poole, who was the WA Superintendent of Public Works.

The building is made of stone from the ballast of ships. It has a beautiful veranda with pillars. Due to the distinct architectural design (which clearly took into account the warm climate in the Pilbara), the courthouse building has become symbollic of Cossack.

The Cossack museum boasts an interesting collection, as well as an old court room for visitors to enjoy.  You are invited to learn more about the history of Asian culture in the Cossack region, and the history of William Shakespeare Hall, an early pioneer in the region.

We look forward to welcoming to you the Cossack Museum.
