[ 1 ] was used for the colonial and Aboriginal prisoners until 1886 , when control passed to the prison colony . After the use of the Round House by police as a barracks until 1900 , it became the home for the chief of police and his family . [ 2 ] In 1936 the property was acquired by the Port of Fremantle in order to preserve the building ; were presented a number of proposals , including the one to turn it into a museum , but these plans were interrupted by World War II . In 1966 , the Port Authority has opened the building to the public for two hours a day . Later , this attraction has been handled by the Western Australian Historical Society . The building is then passed to the City of Fremantle in 1982 and is open every day since then . It is currently run by the Volunteers for the Heritage of Fremantle that hold it open every day from 10:30 to 15:30 . The building became part of the project aimed at installing FreopediA codes QRpedia at various sites around Fremantle . [ 3 ]
