Many Museum collections owe their origins to the passion and commitment of private collectors. The Collector's Cabinet offers visitors a glimpse into a number of local private collections and the stories of people who assembled them.

Are you a collector willing to share your private passion with the public? If you are, and would like to lend your collection to the Museum for temporary display, please complete and submit an Application Form (167kB PDF) for consideration in the Collector’s Cabinet program.


Scott Green: Matchbox Madness
28 November 2017 - May 2018


Matchbox Madness
Some of Scott Green's Matchbox collection.
Scott Green's collection of miniature diecast vehicles began at virtually the same time he did. No sooner had he been born than family members started to buy him Matchbox trucks, cars and emergency vehicles.
The collection sat in storage for nearly three decades, occasionally bolstered by a particularly eye-catching model, but was recently unearthed as Scott sowed the seeds of a collection for his new son.











Craig Nash - Masters of the Universe
Opening 29 May 2018


Masters of the Universe
Re-live the nostalgia of the 1980s and 1990s with a designer toy collection from Uki resident, Craig Nash. Craig began studying moulded plastic toys while taking art classes in glass casting. Craig's art classes finished, but his collecting did not, and he continued to acquire toys and figurines for many years. The collection features many versions of He-Man and Masters of the Universe toys, along with other well-remembered figures from cartoons and television shows from the 1980s and 1990s.
