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.
