Event description

Description

The Gold Museum houses a large array of Aboriginal artefacts collected by Dr. Sydney Pern in the nineteenth century. The collection not only reveals insights into Aboriginal cultures, lifestyles and art, but also tells a story of nineteenth century collecting, and raises ongoing ethical issues regarding ownership, care, and preservation of such artefacts. Teachers will go on a unique back-of-house tour to explore rarely seen items from this collection and meet our Collections Manager. This content is particularly useful for teachers of Year 7/8 History.
