As you can see the skies were blue and the sun
a bit too bright for the official opening of the new WA Museum Boola Bardip, there is a fabulous overview pic on this link, last Saturday the 21st November. Having had a sneak preview inside the week before I was pretty happy I didn't have to stand in the long queues waiting here to explore the new museum. Its name, Boola Bardip, means 'many stories' in Whadjuk, the Noongar language..
Just as it sometimes is with historical facts the lines between past and present architecture can also be hard to align, the spectacular blend of old and new works so well here because although it may look like it, the wonderful old original buildings refuse to be dominated. Will take more photos when we are there next to highlight this point..
With the upheaval of renovations going on at the moment I haven't had time to go through the photos I took on that earlier visit, hopefully soon. Meanwhile a sneak teaser of what's to come :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. The reason no one is wearing masks is because we haven't had any community covid here in WA for the past several months.. P.p.s. still trying to catch up :)
