What We Do


A New Museum for WA

Opening in 2020, the highly anticipated New Museum for WA will be a source of pride for the community of Western Australia, and a fitting gateway to our extraordinary state. It will provide the perfect introduction to WA’s landscapes, biodiversity, culture, and geological heritage. This is an important time in our history, signifying a shift in the cultural landscape for the people of WA – and this is only the beginning.

The Discovery Endowment Fund

The Discovery Endowment Fund has been established by the Foundation for the WA Museum to unleash the potential of the New Museum for WA. With a $35 million fundraising target, our mission is to help create world-class museum facilities, and to sustain and build on the excitement around the New Museum well beyond 2020. With your help the endowment, like those for many of the world’s greatest museums, will provide a secure source of income – a necessity for our future.



Supporting Our State

The Foundation for the WA Museum will engage support from a local and global community for this once-in-a-century opportunity. With your help, we will build on the success and achievements we have already delivered.
