Antiques Evaluation Day
June 9, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - June 10, 2019 @ 2:00 am
The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is proud and excited to present the 4th annual Antiques Evaluation Day at the Museum on Sunday 9 June, 2019.
This day will be conducted in the style of the Antiques Roadshow with a range of specialists available to provide advice, information and estimates on items presented to them. Take this opportunity to come along and chat with professionals about your particular treasures. We encourage you to bring, not just militaria, but also other antiques.
Our qualified specialists include Bronwyn Pratt (The Goldsmith’s Gallery, San Remo); Simon Storey,(Fine Arts, Heritage and Cultural collections); Anne Rowland (Ballarat Arts Gallery); Stewart Dear,(Certified Practicing Valuer, Tyabb Packing House Antiques); Gordon Morgan, (Military and Antique Weapons specialist). Between them our assessors have a range of knowledge on different categories including jewellery, militaria, antique weapons, books, artwork, porcelain, ephemera, medals, and coins.
The limit this year will be 2 items per person to avoid lengthy waiting times. If you haven’t been to the Museum before, take some time to walk among the displays and exhibits. Don’t forget to watch the famous holographic Sound & Light Show, which covers the causes and consequences of the Vietnam War. All the activities will take place undercover, so it won’t matter what the weather does.
The Nui Dat Café will be open for refreshments. The Museum would also like to thank our Sponsors, Bass Coast Shire, the Angior Family Foundation and Archisign for their generous support.
