The highly anticipated WA Museum Boola Bardip is now open in its spectacular new building. Boola Bardip means 'many stories' in Whadjuk Noongar language.
WA Museum Boola Bardip has been developed with a ‘People First’ approach, and its content and experiences have been informed by four Community Panels, the WA Museum Aboriginal Advisory Committee, the Whadjuk Content Working Group, and direct engagement with more than 54,000 people across the state of Western Australia.
As well as its Aboriginal cultural materials gallery Ngalang Koort Booja Wirn, the Museum features the stories and perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout.
The building design integrates five renovated and revitalised heritage buildings with a spectacular new building, creating eight new permanent exhibition galleries, a 1,000sqm special exhibition gallery, life-long learning studios, and retail, café and public spaces.
General admission to WA Museum Boola Bardip is free for everyone for the first 18 months, while admission for children under 15 years will always be free. Find out more here.
