Remember the Children - Share Their Stories

Apr 15, 2023, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

The collection incorporates children's antique and old vintage clothes, toys, games, furniture, school readers and school projects.

The clothes depict many of the long forgotten crafts and skills of mothers from yesteryear. Marvel at the pride of presentation of children in their Sunday best.

The fabrics, the hats and miniature shoes all belonging to another time.
Who recalls "Mothercraft" at school?

There are books, games and comics for hours of fun without electronic devices.
School books school items and projects.

Prams, high chairs and bassinets, more pretty than practical.
The museum is adjacent to the historic churchyard cemetery of the former St Peter's Church of England that was lost to fire in 1968.

Learn the stories of the children interred here from the early 1900's. This year will mark 139 yrs from consecration and official opening on Easter Sunday.

Tea and coffee is available. Take in the display at your own pace or enjoy a personal guided tour.
