Moving the Collection

 - Copyright Tweed Shire Council

During 2012 the Tweed Regional Museum completed a year-long project to document, pack and move more than 6,000 objects as part of the Museum redevelopment project. The Assessment and Relocation report provides some background for the project and a summary following its completion. The project Manual is a significant resource that we hope will be of benefit to other museums facing a similar task.
