WEST AUSTRALIAN MUSEUM
Francis Street PERTH WA
The major functions of the Museum are collections management, knowledge generation and knowledge communication.
The Museum recognises its vital role as a custodian of the state’s collections of scientific and cultural heritage. The management and proper use of these collections are fundamental to our operations. These are the ‘real objects’ that excite, inspire and educate our visitors.
The Museum also recognises that it must play a leading role in acquiring objects for these collections that reflect the cultural and natural environments in which we live, thereby enhancing our understanding of it.
The Museum is an organisation of scholarship and recognises that the knowledge it generates through research should be relevant to society and must be effectively communicated to have impact.
The Museum recognises that it must communicate its knowledge in relevant, engaging and interactive ways and respond effectively to the needs and wants of its customers. This knowledge will increasingly reflect partnerships with government agencies, industry and the community.
