Originally built to store the food, clothing and building supplies of the Swan River colony, these buildings are among the first Western Australian sites built using convict labour.With the creation of the Commonwealth Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976, the Western Australian Museum became the delegated authority for management of Commonwealth historic shipwrecks and relics in Western Australia.As a result, the State Government funded the conversion of the heritage Commissariat Buildings into what is now known as the WA Shipwrecks Museum.
