by Annie Cohen Kopchovsky


Western Australian Museum Housed in a complex containing some of Perth's oldest buildings, the Western Australian Museum specialises in natural history, with mammal, bird, dinosaur, marine and butterfly displays. The Aboriginal Gallery is outstanding, as is the museum's collection of meteorites, while the 25m (82ft) skeleton of a blue whale is another highlight. The Land and People exhibit, which brings to life Western Australian history from prehistoric times to present day, is also popular.
