Our long-awaited new exhibition, Sunburnt Country: Icons of Australian Motoring
, draws ever nearer to completion. Staff and volunteers are excited to see the exhibition coming together piece by piece - even if it has taken their own blood, sweat and tears. Some of our favourite pieces are the lovely Edwardian motoring costumes painstakingly treated by conservators at Artlab and soon going on display. But for now they are still 'under wraps'.Visitors to the Museum have the chance to peek through our glass doors and see the construction team hard at work - and it proves popular for many to catch a behind-the-scenes view. The countdown is on. The exhibition will open officially on Friday 31 May 2013.
