Museums have the power to create unity on both a social and political level, but also on a local one. Local museums are able to provide a sense of community and place by celebrating a collective heritage, offering a great way to get to know the history of a particular area.
In celebration of Heritage Day we spoke to Wellington Museum’s Curator, Olivia le Cordeur, and asked her a few questions about the museum and its importance in the Wellington’s community.
Olivia is Wellington born and bred and remains enchanted by our rural village. She believes that in her line of work passion is essential and you cannot operate in isolation. We applaud her for keeping Wellington Museum dynamic, informative and fun.
