The call has gone out to Silver City residents with an interest in the town’s mineralogical history to take part in engagement sessions designed to create a new masterplan for the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum, more commonly known as the GeoCentre.
The masterplan will consider what changes can be made to the Museum’s operations and the physical layout to provide better user experiences.
“The GeoCentre holds a wealth of mining and mineralogical history, and I’m sure most locals would agree it has the potential to be a far better attraction than it is currently,” Council’s Gallery & Museum Manager, Kathy Graham, said.
“We’d love to hear the community’s ideas on what would bring the Museum to life, not just for tourists, but for locals, students, academics, and people from all walks of life.”
The GeoCentre Masterplan Engagement Sessions will be held at the GeoCentre (corner of Crystal and Bromide Sts) this Thursday, August 24 (4pm-6pm) and Friday, August 25 (3pm-5pm).
