Wollongong Heritage & Stories website launched
WISDOM worked with Wollongong City Council to develop a first for Wollongong. An “online museum”, called Wollongong Heritage & Stories. It's a website containing a collection of exhibits from various Wollongong museums featuring historical items and stories that have helped shape Wollongong over the past century.
It is organised into 6 categories: Industry, Hard Work & Innovation, Women & Children, Our Environment, Our People, Our Events and Only In Wollongong. Most exhibit are from one of the 12 physical museums located within the Illawarra. It's great to know that these exhibits and stories "live on" and can be shared into the future via the digital world!
The website was launched during Heritage week in the Crown Street Mall. WISDOM is extremely proud to have worked on such a significant project for Wollongong and congratulate Wollongong City Council for taking a leading role in presenting the ares's history online for futures generations and visitors alike.
