VIRTUAL TOUR - DISPLAY PAVILIONS



CLARRIE'S SHED

This pavilion, featuring a tear drop front verandah salvaged from demolition, houses eight exhibits making up the major display 'Slab hut to food bowl - life in early Steventon'.

Launch: May 2012.     A CMP Grant from History SA contributed to this display.      

               

VINES TO WINES

This pavilion showcases local vineyards, wineries and the wine making process. Artefacts from Angoves' former St Agnes Winery are featured.

Launch: January 2014.     A CMP Grant from History SA contributed to this display.

               

HOE TO HARVEST

This pavilion showcases local agriculture. The display includes several interactive exhibits, plus audio accounts of life on local farms.

Launch: October 2014.     A CMP Grant from History SA contributed to this display.

               

Large horse-drawn agricultural equipment may be viewed in the grounds adjacent to the blacksmith shop.

               

CARTS TO CARS

This pavilion showcases local transport, dominated by the heavy Lokan wagon and a traditional blue German wagon. The display includes large interpretation panels and several interactive exhibits.

Launch: September 2016.     Tea Tree Gully Lions and a CMP Grant from History SA contributed to this display.

               

POLICE HOLDING CELL

This small building is the actual 1920s Tea Tree Gully Police holding cell. The two person 'portable' building has been 'hidden' for years behind what is now a private residence. Moving to the Museum site has allowed its preservation and viewing by the public.

Launch: August 2016.     Garden Grove provided transport. A local resident contributed to restoration by our volunteers.

               

BLACKSMITH

The blacksmith shop represents the premises of a working blacksmith and wheelwright. Also included is a display of the tools of a local shipwright. On Heritage Sundays, out of fire danger season, a blacksmith will be demonstrating their trade. Traditional wheel construction tools are on display outside.

Launch: October 2014.     Our volunteers constructed this building from recycled materials in 2012 and then outfitted it.

               

Further interpretation is underway, including a video for when a blacksmith is not available.
