Experience Western Australia’s incredible history.
WA Museum Boola Bardip is a place to share Western Australia’s many stories – its unique people, extraordinary places and its role in the world.
Boola Bardip means ‘many stories’ in local Nyoongar language.
Located on Whadjuk Nyoongar boodjar, in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, the Museum includes stunning collections from the State’s past and present and looks to the future through a range of vibrant programs, discussions and debates.
The new Museum features eight permanent galleries, each with its own distinct theme and content, which has been developed in consultation with around 54,000 from across WA.
Explore the stories and culture of the local Aboriginal people, the State’s unique flora, fauna and biodiversity, and the fascinating minerals, meteorites, megafauna and dinosaurs that once inhabited WA and prehistoric Earth.
