The main attraction is the museum's extensive collection of Aboriginal artifacts, but yes, there's a dinosaur gallery for the kids, too. *The Perth site will temporarily close from June 2016 to re-open in 2020.

Each time I have gone to the museum, I have benefited by other activities on display outside and lots are interactive.

Was planning on spending many hours roaming the museum but when we arrived, it was closed for renovations. Surely not all was being renovated at the same time, very disappointed.

The pitifully limited Perth museum is being rebuilt, and not before time. The old museum was a marvel of musty exhibits and stuffed animals. Its successor was very limited. Let's hope they do better this time. The new Perth museum is a building site now....More

We too, our grandchildren for a visit to the Perth Museum as a treat and were very disappointed to find that it is closed for renovations until 2010 when it will return as a state of the art attraction. Wonderful, but what do you do...More

There were great exhibitions at this attraction. It was a great place for children, especially the activities during school holidays. There are fond memories of finding artifacts on the activity sheets provided.

I visited here before all the current renovations. The museum was very informative and had lots of exhibits. Very nice for an afternoon visit before having dinner at a local restaurant.

An interesting and well presented museum. Always a great experience and easy place to get around no matter what interests you. A lot of interactive displays and video presentations.

The Western Australian Museum in Perth truly has something for everyone. From informative virtual tours to admiring the beautiful building, the museum is a wonderland.

A decent climb requiring some energy. However the views when you get to the top are well worth the climb. There are stop off points all the way up for a rest break if needed. So does not need to be too fast a climb.

Hi You have to pay for the special exhibitions they have usually $20 the rest of the museum is on a donation system - you give what you think it's worth. ( well it was like that when I was there last) If you love museums... More
