WA Museum Boola Bardip: Study Tour

15:30 – 17:30

 

This study tour will take delegates through Western Australia’s new $400 million museum Boola Bardip hosted by designers – Hassell.

 

Wander between the restored heritage-listed buildings and the new contemporary development. The old and new come together at the centre of the museum to frame a spectacular outdoor ​‘City Room’ – a public meeting place, event space and program area for the whole community.

 

The new museum designed by Hassell and OMA includes a series of virtual ​‘stories’ which guide visitors through the major galleries to experience more of the state’s collections. Two intersecting loops mean visitors can explore the museum through vertical and horizontal pathways.

 

The new WA Museum building is three times the size of the old museum and includes eight permanent galleries, a 1,000 square metre temporary exhibition gallery, a shop and a cafe.

Premier Mark McGowan described the venue as “spectacular” which would be considered “one of the great public buildings of Australia”.

 

Meeting place:

Cultural precinct at the base of the City Room

14:15-15:45 AWST

$10 (inc. GST) per ticket

Walking can support great health outcomes. Walking, particularly for older people is an essential and safe way for people to get around. As other transport options drop away walking can help older people stay connected and engaged. Join the Heart Foundation as they undertake a practical application of the Healthy Active Ageing checklist, to observe and explore features within the built environment that aid or hinder a city to be age friendly. By addressing the considerations in the checklist, you will learn how we can create more walkable environments, which help older people to be more active longer.
