New way to visit museums

An online collection of significant historic artefacts from across the NSW South East was launched recently.

Museum of the South East — or MoSE — is a collection of pieces from the collections and museums of the Snowy Monaro, Bega Valley and Eurobodalla local government areas. 

South East Arts general manager Andrew Gray said MoSE represents a new way for regional museums to share their stories.

“For many museums in regional areas it is difficult to find volunteers with the time or skills to maintain a quality online resource. The MoSE website, managed by South East Arts, will assist volunteer-run museums to share their collections online and boost cultural tourism,” Mr Gray said.

“In this, the first phase of the project, museums in Narooma, Batemans Bay, Moruya, Cooma, Delegate, Thredbo, Bega and Merimbula have been included in the MoSE collection.
