Travellers and Traders: in the Indian Ocean World
The Indian Ocean has played a significant role in Western Australia’s history and our connection with the world, but that’s only part of the story.
Now, in one of the first major Indian Ocean exhibitions to be staged by a museum anywhere in the world, we reveal the rich history of this vast and mysterious body of water.
Discover why this ocean has not only been the centre of the global economy, but has been the world’s first super highway, spreading ideas from one culture to another like nothing before it – and only the internet since.
