WA Museum Boola Bardip

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Welcome to WA Museum Boola Bardip, located in the arts and culture hub in Perth. Meaning ‘many stories’ in the traditional Nyoongar language, the Museum provides a bold, dynamic setting for Western Australia’s fascinating stories, history and culture to unfold through state-of-the-art technology and innovative interactive exhibits.

Rising majestically above the heritage buildings of Perth’s Cultural Centre, this modern marvel – designed by international architect consortium Hassell and OMA – encompasses 6,000 square metres of gallery space, including a 1,000 square metre large-scale exhibition space.

Wander the two intersecting loops to feel inspired by the virtual stories and collections held in eight exhibitions, which explore three major themes: the diversity and spirit of the West Australian people, the awe-inspiring beauty of the state’s landscape, and Western Australia’s impact on the world.

Boola Bardip takes a unique ‘people-first’ approach to its curation, with the stories and perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples taking centre stage in its exhibitions. In doing so, the museum recognises the primary rights of Australia’s first peoples in practising and expressing their cultural heritage.

Continue the conversation by joining a guided tour, attending an educational event or heading to one of Boola Bardip’s vibrant communal spaces.
