Rockhampton Prepares to Celebrate International Museum Day

By David Bell

Rockhampton Art Gallery is preparing to open its doors for a very special event tomorrow (May 18), as the city prepares to mark International Museum Day.

The area has become synonymous with cultural activities over the years, which are likely to appeal to some people seeking real estate in Rockhampton.

Councillor Rose Swadling, chair of Rockhampton Regional Council's communities committee, explained that the day will be fun-packed for people of all ages.

She continued: "International Museum Day is a great opportunity to come along to see the current exhibitions, meet exhibiting artist Michele Kershaw and get creative by making their own gift card.

"There will be lots of exciting art and craft activities for toddlers and teens too. Plus free face painting and giveaways!"

Visitors and residents are also encouraged to visit the various other cultural attractions throughout the city, including the Mount Morgan Railway Museum and the Central Queensland Collection at the History Centre.

The Heritage Village is another of Rockhampton's major attractions, which hosts its ever popular markets every two months.

The event, which is popular with local residents, provides a great opportunity to buy arts and crafts, as well as produce, plants and more.
