NEWSREADER: Also today, the state government announced a new website is to be set up to showcase regional WA's museum and gallery collections.
Speaking in Albany today, minister David Templeman said the new digital collections website will allow museums to publish their artefacts and archives for the world to see.
It's part of a one million dollar election commitment to promoting our regional museums.
Lotterywest has donated three hundred thousand dollars to train museum staff and volunteers in the new digital platform.
DAVID TEMPLEMAN: and that is going to open up the opportunities for those smaller galleries, and larger ones, to tell their West Australian stories to a even broader audience.
