The Patagotitan has left, Wonderland has arrived and new and exciting temporary exhibitions are on the horizon in 2023.

For most of us, our experience of temporary exhibitions is exploring finished curated spaces, the result of which involves many, many months, even years of negotiation, preparation and coordination by many people across a diverse range of skills, and that’s before it even arrives!

Join staff from our award-winning Exhibition and Design team as they take you behind the scenes to find out what it takes to bring exhibitions to Western Australia for us all to enjoy. Intrigued?

Please note:

  • This Meet the Museum session is being held on a Friday and not the usual Thursday.
  • This session also includes entry to the special exhibition; Wonderland.
  • Following the talk, you will be able to re-enter the exhibition to explore at your own pace and can also enjoy the Half Mad Bar: Visual Immersive
