Collection Significance Assessment

In June, Melanie Piddocke from Queensland Museum visited the island to undertake a Collection Significance Assessment of the collections held at the Lord Howe Island Museum. Melanie was very impressed by the collection, and spent a lot more time in the museum than she had anticipated, as the collections held are quite extensive, including artefacts, books, artworks, stamps, maps and more.

By the end of August, we should have the completed report, highlighting the local, state, national and international significance of our collection.

Dr Piddocke has posted an initial commentary on the Queensland Museum’s website: A Slice of Sailing History
