WA Museum Boola Bardip

James Street Mall, Perth / Yandilup

The WA Museum Boola Bardip has become Perth’s new stand-out building. Conceived and designed by the international architectural consortium of Hassell + OMA, its clean lines and dramatic spaces both promise, and deliver, exciting experiences.

Just as impressive is the integration of five of Perth’s most extraordinary heritage buildings, all of which are ingeniously wrapped into the overall design, with seamless connections between them and the new buildings.  The venue consists of 6 function spaces available for hire, which include the circulation foyers connecting the galleries, Hackett Hall where Otto the Blue Whale lives, the Learning Studios and the City Room.
