The new Discovery Zone is an exciting space created especially for the young and the curious. Touch and see objects from across Western Australia and around the world as you learn about dinosaur trackways, meteorites and our amazing night sky.

Reconstruct replica shipwreck artefacts and re-connect with some of your favourite objects from the Museum’s Perth site, including beautiful butterflies and ancient spearheads and arrows, as you learn about our incredible natural and social history.

Family activities will take place in the discovery zone during the school term and school holidays, stay tuned for the details.
