After 6 long months the Moruya and District Historical Society is pleased to announce that the Museum is re-opening on Wednesday 25th November.
A spokesperson for the Moruya and District Historical Society said "We are excited to welcome our members and the public back with two extremely interesting exhibitions."
· “Treasurers from the Ground, Early Mining in Eurobodalla” which tells the story of the early mining discoveries, the miners who took part and displays of mining artifacts of that period.
· “Illuminated, The Art of Children’s Book Illustration” is a display of children’s books and the beautiful illustrations which many of the early books contain. This is a unique opportunity to view some of our old books and will be of interest to both adults and children alike.
"Visitors will also have access to our permanent displays including the Remembrance Room describing the war heroes of Eurobodalla. The kitchen, laundry, nursery and bedroom all containing artifacts of the mid 1800 period.
"The Rotary Room showcases the Granite story of Moruya’s connection to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and other Sydney landmarks. Also exhibited is the lathe, made in 1881 in Aberdeen, Scotland, and shipped to Australia where it was used to shape the granite columns. The Rotary room also houses other artificats including those from the local dairying, agriculture, gold and shipping industries. There is lots to see. "
"We have been working hard during the last few months and a lot has changed so come and see what we have achieved and support your local Museum. If you have some spare time you might like to consider volunteering with us.
"Attached to the Museum is our Research area where we have resources for general genealogy research and a local studies collection which includes files, archives and photographs. If you are interested in researching your family call the Research team and they will be able to help you.
