Maryborough museum wins award
THE MARYBOROUGH Military and Colonial Museum has won a major honour in this year’s National Trust of Queensland Heritage awards.
Museum director John Meyers went to Brisbane to collect the award with a group of the museum’s volunteers.
“We won the silver in the community awards section for our new Gallipoli Room and were thrilled,” Mr Meyers said yesterday.
“Competition was tough but our 70-odd volunteers do a fantastic job of keeping the museum going and at the same time welcoming.”
The gold award went to the Queensland Founding Families project that creates biographies of families living in the state before separation from New South Wales.
