Your Museum - Your WA, a Museum for our future
Western Australia is a truly extraordinary state with breathtaking diversity and a geological record stretching back hundreds of millions of years. The Western Australian Museum is at the forefront of research, study and presentation of this amazing natural resource – Sir David Attenborough
Extraordinary things happen at the Western Australian Museum – thanks, in no small part, to the generosity of our valued supporters.
Help us to expand our research, protect our species, celebrate our culture, grow our collections, educate the community and showcase WA to the world. Support us to preserve the rich legacy of our past while contributing to the future understanding and protection of life on Earth.
