Kick back under Otto the blue whale and take in some of the best family films going around.

Join us at WA Museum Boola Bardip for a mini film festival weekend for the family.

Take a break from your day exploring the Museum, stay out of the summer heat and sink into our beanbags to watch a movie with meaning.

Each film has been curated with learning in mind and provides the opportunity for you and your family to consider key issues the environment faces today.

For each movie we will be highlighting a related object from the Museum, so be prepared to go on a treasure hunt after the screening! Grab a popcorn and nestle in for the duration of the film.
