Western Australian Museum

Located in Perth’s Cultural Centre, the new Western Australian Museum provides spaces for exhibitions and events, and new retail and dining opportunities for the former museum, showcasing the State’s natural and cultural collections. Formed with renovated heritage-listed buildings and new volumes, the Museum has been conceived as a framework to share the diverse stories of Western Australia—a State characterised by its extraordinary people and places and home to the oldest continuous culture on earth, an increasingly diverse, multicultural population, and a world biodiversity hotspot.
