Located in the heart of heritage Perth, this stone dwelling, a National Historic Site, features four period rooms reflecting the lifestyle of the Honourable Roderick Matheson and his family who owned the house for 90 years. The museum contains two galleries where changing exhibitions are featured and the history of Perth is always on display. Outdoors you will find a Scottish garden and a kitchen herb garden.
