Description

Berndt Museum of Anthropology was formally established in 1976 by the University of Western Australia. It holds one of Australia's finest collections of Australian Aboriginal, contemporary and historical art and cultural materials, as well as Asian and Melanesian collections.

Initially known as the Anthropology Research Museum, it was renamed the Berndt Museum of Anthropology in 1992. The change of name was to honour the Museum's founders and principal benefactors, Ronald M. and Catherine H. Berndt. The Museum administers the Professor Ronald M. and Dr Catherine H. Berndt Research Foundation that promotes research in the field of Aboriginal Australia.

The core collections were obtained by Ronald M. and Catherine H. Berndt during almost fifty years of fieldwork in many areas of Australia, as well as New Guinea.

These have been augmented by materials assembled by staff, graduate students and other associates of the Discipline of of Anthropology and Sociology, as well as through purchases and donations under the federal Cultural Gifts Program.
