This is a chance to see behind the scenes within our collection storage spaces not usually open to the public and a great opportunity to learn more about the Museums Discovery Centre’s role in preserving Australia’s history. Hosts will be available to answer questions and spark discussions on how we collect, care for and store objects.
The vehicles you might see range from classic cars like the Morris Minor, Cobb & Co carriages, early bicycles to perhaps even a horse-drawn traveller’s caravan from circa 1914 that is thought to be the only example of its kind in Australia.
Storage Glimpse sessions are free and no bookings are required.
To help plan your visit, please find information here about the measures we’ve put in place in response to COVID-19 to keep everyone safe.
