Hi everyone. Have received info. about a travelling road show by DVA in conjunction with the 100th ANZAC commemorations. Are you interested in having an exhibition of memorabilia from the museum to be held at the village where I reside here in Pakenham? Please advise and I'll come over to discuss the details further. Cheers, Doc

We do 5-6 external exhibitions a year. If you have a theme and date in mind get back to me and we will see what we can do. Regards. Leigh
