With more than 300 museums and countless historical sites, WA offers an extensive range of fascinating permanent and changing exhibitions. There are six state-funded museums (category = state museums), many privately funded museums and, not to be overlooked, WA’s smaller regional museums which house a unique array of local history and memorabilia, with collections primarily donated by locals and staffed by volunteers. When looking for museums and historic sites near you, hit the MAP button.

The Museum Collections Guide is a brand new addition to the site and an excellent way to view the collections which interest you. We are currently encouraging museums to list their various collections, and expect to very quickly build the most comprehensive guide to museum collections in Western Australia.
