School Holidays at the WA Museum Boola Bardip

WA Museum Boola Bardip is a place to share Western Australia’s many stories: our people, our places and our role in the world. 

Situated in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, the Museum explores our State’s rich cultural and natural heritage through three major themes – being Western Australian, Discovering Western Australia and Exploring the World.
Each of the Museum’s eight exhibition galleries explores these themes through collections, research and the perspectives of communities from around Western Australia.
Woven throughout are the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, recognising the primary rights of Australia’s first peoples in practising and expressing their cultural heritage. 
Admission to the Museum is free and bookings can be made online. Walk-up entry is available, but we encourage pre-bookings to secure your place as you may experience a wait time during busy periods.
