Saving Family Treasures

For the first time at Unearthed locals are invited to bring their precious heirlooms and have a museum expert assess the item's significance and give pointers on how to care and store their most loved pieces. From family recipes, to clocks, books, photos or jewellery, bring your treasures to Unearthed's very own Antique Roadshow. Head to Dr Melanie Piddocke's stall inside the MECC hall. Look for the glass showcase stand in the Queensland Museum Network area. Present your item to Melanie and take your loved item home with new stories and appreciation.
