Kalamunda History Village is on the site of the old Upper Darling Range Railway Station built in the 1890s to service the Zig Zag line which transported timber from Canning Mills to the main line at Midland Junction. It is the largest local museum in Western Australia depicting the unique hills life and industries that developed in the area.

The museum consists of:
