The Western Australian Museum locations (except the New Museum which opens on 21 November) are open and we look forward to welcoming you.

The health and well-being of visitors, volunteers and staff is our single most important priority.

We have a COVID Safety Plan in place and we are following government advice.

In line with the WA Government’s Phase 4 requirements, there is a limit of 1 person per 2 square metres of venue space.  In most cases, this is easily achieved.

We have increased the scope of our cleaning regime, and we have available hand sanitiser for visitors.

We ask that all visitors practice physical distancing and, if feeling unwell, particularly if experiencing a fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath, visit on another day.

To explore the Western Australian Museum from wherever you are, visit Distant Discoveries where you will find videos, photographs and stories. For the kids there’s also an interactive choose-your-own adventure trail.
