The Western Australian Museum proudly presents Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum Kabul. Touring Australia for the first time, Hidden Treasures features more than 230 priceless artefacts of gold, bronze and stone sculptures, ivories, painted glassware and other ancient works of art.

For years these artefacts were thought lost or destroyed as war and instability shook Afghanistan. In 2003, they were uncovered from vaults in the central bank of the presidential palace, where they had been placed in secrecy by a few courageous staff from the National Museum, Kabul.

Explore the tales of bravery that protected these precious artefacts and discover the surprising, untold story of the long and extraordinarily rich culture that is Afghanistan.

Open 9:30am – 5pm daily

Entry fees apply. Book online or phone 1300 134 081
