I drove to this museum and could I find it? Only after having asked 6 people, 4 of whom didn't know where it was either, yet it was so close. No signage really doesn't help until you know what you are looking for. It may be easier on foot if you are coming from the other direction, but a few signs on the roads, particularly on Museum Street or James Street would be very helpful especially as the building is way back from the road. Nothing helpful on the web site to give any pointers either.
I was with my mother who although relatively fit doesn't do stairs well. We were told to use the lift on the older side of the building. This took us to what looked to be an old library with display cabinets on one side. There was some very interesting stuff there in WA land and people but the layout and design were poor and didn't do them justice. You couldn't hear the programme that was running and yet was very informative. By chance someone told us there was more on the other side of the building and we stumbled across the geology section and the very good insight on what happened with the Aborigines. I see there are great plans for this place - there is so much potential and I look forward to revisiting when their plans are realised.
