The iconic West Australian Museum in the Perth Cultural Centre is closing from mid-2016 until 2020 while the historical buildings undergo an extensive renovation and new buildings are established on the site.

While the WA Museum is technically not closing for business, as there are three regional sites in Kalgoorlie, Albany and Geraldton, as well as the Fremantle Maritime Museum and Shipwreck Galleries, it is the central Museum that parents and children have long enjoyed as an educational free outing.

Over the past few months, all the long term exhibits have been closing and the artefacts stored in the Museum’s special buildings in Welshpool. One final exhibit – the History of the World in 100 Objects remains open until June 18th, at which point the doors will close for four years while the extensive $400 million building work takes place.

Over the next four years, the Museum plans to hold pop-up displays and other events where some of the sites favourite items will be shared with the public, but the traditional Perth experience of taking the kids on the train for a free day at the Museum will be missed by a cohort of small children.

The New Museum as it is being referred to, will eventually reopen in 2020 and house the extensive collection of social, historical and scientific objects that tell the stories of Western Australia, as well as three new permanent displays, exhibition space, interactive space where visitors can see behind-the-scenes into the research and preservation work that normally occurs behind closed doors, and new café and shopping areas.
