The main attraction is the museum's extensive collection of Aboriginal artifacts, but yes, there's a dinosaur gallery for the kids, too. *The Perth site will temporarily close from June 2016 to re-open in 2020.

Was planning on spending many hours roaming the museum but when we arrived, it was closed for renovations. Surely not all was being renovated at the same time, very disappointed.

The pitifully limited Perth museum is being rebuilt, and not before time. The old museum was a marvel of musty exhibits and stuffed animals. Its successor was very limited. Let's hope they do better this time. The new Perth museum is a building site now....More

There were great exhibitions at this attraction. It was a great place for children, especially the activities during school holidays. There are fond memories of finding artifacts on the activity sheets provided.

I visited here before all the current renovations. The museum was very informative and had lots of exhibits. Very nice for an afternoon visit before having dinner at a local restaurant.
