12 months unlimited general admission entry for the price of a single admission

Membership

Western Australian Museum’s membership program

If you’re 16 years or older, sign up for one of our annual membership options starting from the price of a single admission, and get UNLIMITED general admission entry into WA Museum Boola Bardip and/or WA Maritime Museum.

You’ll also receive heaps of additional benefits, including discounted exhibition tickets, pre-sale access and invitations to member-only events.

Keep an eye out for our WAM Member logo across our site to unlock your benefits.

General admission for children aged 15 and under is free to all WA Museum sites and does not require a membership. However, the Museum offers a Junior ‘Friend’ membership, which entitles the holder to special exhibition discounts and supports the Museum in developing new public programs, innovative experiences, and conducting important research about Western Australia and our world. Full details below.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is my membership valid at all WA Museums?

    The Super Fan and Friend Membership options provide access to all WA Museum locations.

    The individual site-based Fan Membership, for both WA Maritime Museum and WA Museum Boola Bardip, provide access to their own respective sites only.

    General admission entry is free at WA Shipwrecks Museum (Fremantle), Museum of Geraldton, Museum of the Goldfields (Kalgoorlie), and Museum of the Great Southern (Albany).

    Can I upgrade my membership?

    Yes! You can upgrade your Boola Bardip or Maritime Museum Fan membership to a Super Fan or Friend membership; or your Super Fan membership to a Friend membership by paying the difference online or in person. The upgrade will be valid for the remainder of your existing membership period. 

    Alternatively, you can purchase a new membership at a higher level that will be valid for one year from date of purchase, and request for your existing membership to be cancelled. There is no refund or credit available for the remaining unused period of the cancelled membership. 

    Do I get a physical membership card?

    All members will be provided with a digital membership card that is stored on your phone for convenience and environmental sustainability. You can request a physical card by emailing membership@museum.wa.gov.au . Once ready, the card can be collected from your nominated WA Museum site. 

    Do I get a membership pack?

    Friend members receive a membership pack that can be collected from any of our WA Museum sites. If you would like a physical copy of your membership card, please email membership@museum.wa.gov.au at least two weeks prior to collecting your member pack so that we can have it ready for you.
