Carnotaurus on the move
CLICK these videos to see how we move a dinosaur!
Betty is the biggest object we are moving as part of the temporary closure. We are in the process of progressively moving objects from our Perth site to our Welshpool Collections and Research Centre as we prepare for the New Museum, which will open in 2020.
We need to move the collections and temporarily close the Perth site because the New Museum is a major construction project and we want to ensure our collections, staff and visitors are safe while building takes place.
The Museum’s Perth site is still open until June 2016 and A History of the World In 100 Objects is opening on 13 February and should not be missed! We also have lots of fabulous activities and exhibitions at our other sites including the Da Vinci Machines exhibition which is on display at the WA Maritime Museum now.
While we develop the New Museum you can still visit our other five sites; WA Maritime Museum, WA Museum - Shipwreck Galleries in Fremantle and our regional sites in Albany, Geraldton and Kalgoorlie-Boulder. Plus keep an eye out for the Museum in surprising places as we pop up throughout the State!
