Keep in touch is a Hurstville Museum & Gallery produced exhibition that takes you back to the world of analogue communication and showcases the development of information and communication services in the St George region.

Explore old writing equipment, telephones and radios and see how things have changed
over time.

The exhibition provides a variety of interactive components, for example, visitors are able to watch a news clip from 1987 when Australia launched its first mobile phone network. They can also write secret messages in Morse code, feel a story in braille, and sit back and relax in a living room straight from the 1960s to experience the fanfare that surrounded the introduction of colour television in 1975.


The exhibition is on display from 20 October 2018 - 27 January 2019, with its official opening on 26 October, 6.00pm.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
