Tweed Regional Museum explores Aussie ingenuity with new exhibit ‘Design Nation’.  

Tweed Regional Museum is re-opening its doors to the public with an exciting new exhibition entitled Design Nation.

Murwillumbah will be the first place in Australia to view the touring exhibition from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (Powerhouse) in Sydney.

Design Nation brings together outstanding examples of Australian ingenuity and innovation in a range of classic, everyday objects from Aussie households. The exhibition casts a spotlight on Australia’s rich manufacturing and design history from the mid-1960s to the late 1980s.

In preparation for re-opening, new measures have been put in place to ensure the museum is a safe place to visit, including a limit on visitor numbers.  Visitors are encouraged to book their free tickets online for a morning or afternoon session.  The museum has strict hygiene measures in place and will continue to be guided by public health advice, as well as liaising with other museums and galleries, to determine best practice during COVID restrictions.

The Tweed Regional Museum branch at Tweed Heads will remain closed until 15 September 2020. However, visitors can enjoy a virtual tour of both Boyds’ Shed and the original Tweed Heads Courthouse and look forward to September school holiday programs.

To book your free visit, or to preview one of the Museum’s virtual tours, visit the museum website here.
