‘Tools of the Trade’ – exhibition
May 19 - July 16 | 10:00am - 4:00pm| Free
From builder to baker, from cobbler to cooper, each occupation has its own set of tools. Featuring 12 different trades, Tools of the Trade will explore our museum collections to reveal the variety of trades both historical and contemporary in the Moreton Bay area. Each of the trades featured, spotlights a member of the local community who practices this trade today, revealing their unique story.
Visitors are encouraged to interact with the exhibition by participating in workshops and handling some of these tools.
Programs: Free self-paced children’s activities throughout the exhibition
