Residents were invited to bring war memorabilia for historians to examine, go for a stroll through the rooms filled with history and experience the filming of a television show.
Emmanuel Catholic College students were among those involved, after they were invited to present a time capsule, which included items like letters from students, a recent newspaper, a mobile phone and iPod and a USB with photos, music, and videos showing what life is like as a teenager in 2014.
Emmanuel Catholic College history teacher Kylie Durrant, who is also a volunteer at the museum, said the students who were involved in the event were part of a unique experience.
‘Tony Robinson was extremely interested in a couple of the items that we have placed into the capsule,’ she said.
‘Overall the day was a great experience for the students and their parents who came along.
‘The students were able to take a tour through the museum as well as seeing a number of history exhibits and talking to many of the volunteers that run the museum.’
