Townsville Museum goes global.

Great to see Townsville Museum and Historical Society embrace the ABC Open Now and Then series (see March 23 blog entry).  The Harvey Talks History video shows what can be done to bring the collections and stories  to a world wide audience.  Have a look here at the video on the ABC website and see the museum’s website here.
