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.

There were some really good temporary exhibited when we visited. Both the ANZAC and aboriginal exhibits were fantastic, where it is let down is by some of the permanent exhibits which could really do with a spruce up.

Lots to see and do here and some good interactive things for kids to experience including drawers full of exhibits to open. Best of all it is free, however they do ask for donations and we gladly left a reasonable amount.
