On 3 May the Port MacDonnell Maritime Museum officially opened its new premises to the public. After many years of planning the museum has moved from cramped, cold accommodation, to a large, modern building, purpose-built to house the library, museum and a gallery space. See the full story here.
On 4 May John Hill, Minister for the Arts, officially opened a major new exhibition and collection store and workroom at The Sheep’s Back Museum. The Footprints exhibition showcases the environmental impact of wool growing on the south-east region and the impact on farming practice that environmental awareness brings. The exhibition completes the redevelopment of the Museum’s Mill Building.
To top off The Sheep’s Back’s success with Footprints, the Minister also presented the Museum with their well-deserved certificate of re-accreditation in the CMP. See the full story here.
