MONTO His­tor­i­cal and Cul­tural Cen­tre is set to join forces with a sim­i­lar or­gan­i­sa­tion in the North Bur­nett to show­case se­lected his­tor­i­cal ob­jects of towns in the re­gion.

Mu­seum devel­op­ment of­fi­cer for the Queens­land Mu­seum, Ly­dia Egun­nike, said Monto had a very good space for its ex­hibits and en­joyed the sup­port of a com­mit­ted group.

“This is a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort within the North Bur­nett with mu­se­ums and cul- tu­ral cen­tres work­ing to­gether rather than com­pet­ing, there­fore they are bet­ter able to at­tract fund­ing,” Ms Egun­nike said.

In March next year Monto will host the first ex­hi­bi­tion of his­tor­i­cal ob­jects from five or­gan­i­sa­tions across four towns – Eidsvold, Monto, MtPerry and Mun­dub­bera – be­fore vis­it­ing other towns in the re­gion.

The pro­gram is funded through the Queens­land Government’s Blue­print for the Bush ini­tia­tive.
