Highs and lows of parenting in exhibition
THE Belmont Museum is celebrating the Australian Heritage Festival with a new exhibition.
The mini-museum, housed in the Ruth Faulkner Public Library until the new Civic Precinct is built, is hosting A Mother’s Voice: Stories of Parenting in Belmont.
Through oral histories, photographs, stories and artefacts, visitors can discover the highs and lows of parenting throughout the ages, and hear from Belmont-based mothers from all walks of life.
There are a number of special activities for kids to soak up history while making craft, including Stories After School with picture frame decoration for 4-to-7year-olds on Thursday, May 4, and Triple8 Kids Club with a tour and weaving activity for those aged seven and over on Wednesday, May 10.
You can explore the Belmont Museum from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and for a limited time only, 9am to noon on Saturdays.
