You might be surprised about the many different ways courage has been shown in the field. It doesn't always involve weapons, but always takes strength, compassion and determination.
To help cater with demand from schools, with the ANZAC centenary starting in 2014 with the 100 year anniversary of the declaration of World War 1, the museum is offering school Open days. These are short format programs for 90 minutes. They include tent pegging demonstrations, flag raising and a museum overview appropriate to the year level. The open days are planned around significant days. Click on title or photo above for datas and times planned.
