Macro Monday Series: Week 7

During our Macro Mondays Series we share a macro shot of something in our collection on Mondays for you to guess. We then give you the answer on Wednesdays. Then, our Curator Jaydeyn, tells you a bit about the item in detail on Thursdays. This is a fantastic way for you to get to know our collection from the comfort of your own home. 
Follow along on our social media channels, or check the website weekly for the new item!

This object certainly is shinier than most! Have a good guess before scrolling for the answer!


This week we chose one of the plaques that hangs proudly on the walls of the museum. We have many more up at our storage facility that feature vessels, organisations and people important to the Strait’s history. To hear more about these plaques, tune in tomorrow as our curator Jaydeyn takes you through a few interesting ones housed in our storage facility.
