COFFS Harbour may still be without a museum building but volunteers and staff from the Coffs Harbour Regional Museum celebrated International Museum’s Day yesterday at the ‘pop-up museum’ in the Palms Shopping centre.

Today is one of the last days to see the current display of historic radios and phonographs on show, as the pop-up museum is changing its spots from sound to sight and becoming the Picture Coffs Harbour display.

The museum co-ordinator Terrie Beckhouse said the new display should be complete by the weekend, with hundreds of photographs out of more than 12,000 on show depicting the early days of Coffs Harbour.
