The Channel Seven Mandurah Crab Fest is Western Australia’s largest free community event. Celebrating culture, lifestyle, food and of course the native Blue Swimmer Crab, the Mandurah Crab Fest is an annual must-do experience. Held over the weekend of 16 & 17 March, you will once again find the WA Museum at Crab Fest 2019! With the support of the Foundation for the WA Museum, the Museum in a Container, proudly supported by Santos will be open from 10am to 6pm!

The WA Museum is providing audiences with a wide range of offsite Museum experiences while the New Museum in the Perth Cultural Centre is under construction. During the Crab Fest weekend, the Museum in a Container will engage audiences in a variety of activities:

Find out about the Blue Swimmer Crab
Learn about the Museum’s research into WA’s amazing marine diversity
Talk to Aquatic Zoology curators who will answer all your crustacean questions and tell you about some fascinating specimens
Watch live taxidermy demonstrations and crab dissections
