HI Alison, thanks for your message. I joined MA Historians NN this year after attending the national conference. Yes, Fremantle History closure was sad for us too - we would have been in the middle of moving those collections when you visited. Other projects we are working on are exhibition redevelopments for Albany and Kalgoorlie branches. Is there another gallery redevelopment opening soon at NMA?
cheers
Leigh
