Open Museums Open Minds
Maitland is home to a number of collections of items that reveal aspects of Maitland’s past, present and future. Some are owned and managed by Council; others are under community care. They are public, social and cultural assets that contribute to the visitor economy and to Maitland’s cultural landscape.
Open Museums, Open Minds documents the nature and content of these collections, and the variety of ways in which they invite residents and visitors to engage with the collections and the stories those collections can tell. It also documents the resources they have and use, and the resources they need.
