All general admission tickets are only valid for the stated date on the transaction confirmation, and not valid for any other date.

Western Australian Museum reserves the right to cancel any ticket and refund the amount paid in full where there has been an error in ticket pricing, whether due to human error or website malfunction.

Replacement of lost, stolen or missing tickets may be permitted at Western Australian Museum’s sole discretion and fees may apply.

In this case, a refund or exchange will be offered in accordance to these terms and conditions or any applicable law at the time.

All ticket holders are required to comply with all Western Australian Museum guidelines and Government directions, orders and regulations relevant to attending cultural institutions or live events, which may be in place at the time of the event.
