We believe that Western Australia stands as an extraordinary and globally iconic cultural location. It is a place in constant evolution which harnesses the imagination with spectacular and diverse natural attractions which inspire and transform everyone it touches.

We don’t simply assist to preserve the past. We work to define and advance our social and scientific heritage, both in Western Australia and on the world stage, now and for future generations.

We are the Foundation for the Museum of Western Australia.
