We're excited to introduce our latest partnership with aged care providers, enhancing visits for older guests.

Following a successful pilot phase, we're excited to open up this program to service providers through an expression of interest process.

At WA Museum Boola Bardip, accessibility is at the heart of what we do. We're thrilled to announce our latest initiative Footsteps - a partnership opportunity with aged care service providers, designed to elevate the Museum experience for our older visitors.

We understand that visiting alone can present challenges related to mobility, practicality, or the desire for companionship. That's why we're wholeheartedly dedicated to providing a more immersive and accessible experience.

With Footsteps, older visitors can confidently explore the Museum, guided by our compassionate and knowledgeable Aged Care trained Volunteers, who possess an intimate understanding of the building, its facilities, and the gallery content.
