Cairns Museum will soon be opening a new exhibition called Cairns 1942: War in a northern town. Last weekend 10 volunteers worked tirelessly to help prepare the exhibition space for the new display. Old displays were dismantled and stored. New walls were installed. The exhibition space and object cases were vigorously cleaned. And new display panels and objects were temporarily placed to ensure the layout was correct. Stay tuned to see more images from the exhibition after it officially opens on Tuesday 5 June 2012.
