Show and Tell: Young Collectors

The Burnie Regional Museum has a dedicated display case where young people from around the North West region can showcase their collections!  Whether it’s action figures, shells, stamps or something entirely different, the Burnie Regional Museum would love to see it! 

 Young Collectors have the opportunity to:

  • Create a mini exhibition, with help from Museum staff
  • Experience what it’s like to be a Museum Curator
  • Learn how museums display objects, tell stories and care for their collections

The program aims to engage with young people in the community and foster their interest in collecting, museums and local heritage.

Participants will hopefully gain a better understanding of the role museums play in the community by exhibiting, interpreting and caring for their collections.
