Western Australian Museum
The Western Australian Museum is the State’s premier cultural organisation, housing WA’s scientific and cultural collection.
For over 120 years the Museum has been making the State's natural and social heritage accessible and engaging through research, exhibitions and public programs.
Today, the Museum has seven public locations across our State – and a Collections and Research Centre that houses more than eight million objects.
The WA Museum Boola Bardip opened in the Perth Cultural Centre on Saturday 21 November 2020 with nine days of celebration.
Review of the Maritime Archaeology Act
The Western Australian Government, through the Western Australian Museum (WA Museum), has proposed changes to the Maritime Archaeology Act 1973 (WA) to reflect changes in national legislation, international and best practice, and to take account of the changing context of maritime archaeology over the last 50 years.
