Premier Colin Barnett is on a rebuilding rampage, today suggesting the $500 million Perth museum, slated for a new home at the East Perth Power Station, be reconstructed at its current Northbridge home.

ABC radio reported Mr Barnett as saying he had some concerns that the East Perth location would alienate Perth's culture and arts facilities.

The old museum has been shut down due to asbestos contamination.

Mr Barnett reportedly said WA needed a new museum and one option was to rebuild at the Northbridge site.

The Premier has earlier said that he preferred a rebuild of the Subiaco Oval, as opposed to a completely new, $1.1 billion stadium.

He said all options over the stadium will be explored.
