War Heritage Roadshow

Do you have wartime artefacts at home? Do you know their significance or how to care for them?

War Heritage Roadshow 2017

Bring your objects along for personalised advice from Australia's top preservation experts about how to keep your family's wartime heritage items safe in your home for future generations to enjoy.

The War Heritage Roadshow, an initiative of the Victorian Government's War History and Heritage Strategy, will tour Victoria during 2017, giving Victorians practical advice on caring for wartime artefacts.

Delivered by the University of Melbourne, the free Roadshow is bringing Australia's leading experts in preservation to you for a two-day line-up of workshops and information sessions.

Our conservators and historians have seen an incredible range of war heritage at the first three Roadshow locations. Those with artefacts and those who came to listen and observe all reported having a fantastic time and left with lots of information, advice and confidence to take care of their own war heritage.
