History

The Western Australian Museum initially came into being following the passing of the Museum Act in 1959. Under the Act the former trustees were replaced by a five man Board.

The Museum's overall objectives were to make and preserve collections of scientific and cultural heritage, to conduct research upon them and to disseminate the results of that research through their display and by other means, including publications.
