Transportation to Trade

Located in the Nigel Peck Long Gallery, this exhibition focuses on a carefully selected grouping of items from the Woolmers Collection, relating to the daily tasks of convicts assigned to Thomas Archer.

The tools and household items belong to the uniquely intact collection the Archer family amassed across six generations, none of which have ever before been displayed publicly.

The Woolmers Collection encompasses six generations of the Archer family’s possessions with the current exhibition allowing visitors to examine closely, the items associated with the convict assignment period and the years that followed.

There are many ‘hidden stories’ waiting to be told.

The exhibition is open to the public Tuesday – Sunday 10.00am – 2.30pm. Entry is by donation.
