South Lake disability advocate Pam Barras will form part of the Access and Inclusion Panel, Hamilton Hill resident and retired journalist John Horner will join the People�s Panel, while Aubin Grove 11-year-old Bianca Viljoen will slot into the Children and Young People panel.

The local trio are among 60 West Australians helping pick content and experiences that will be included in the museum when it opens at the Perth Cultural Centre in 2020.

Speaking on behalf of Bianca, mum Lucille said her daughter was excited about what the experience would entail.

�Bianca feels that it is a big responsibility because it is important to decide on the right things to include in the museum,� she said.

WA Museum chief executive Alec Coles said the panels had an important role to play in the look and function of the new museum.
