Welcome to the State Library. We offer a range of tours and programs to help you explore the building and our collections. All tours and programs are free.

Maps, music, microfilm and more 

Be inspired by the collections, programs and exhibitions at your State Library. During an informative hour long tour, discover just what we have to offer and how it all comes together to tell the story of our State. The tour lasts about 50 - 60 minutes. You will walk through each floor of the library, and finish at the J S Battye Library of West Australian History on the Third floor.
