The Tweed Regional Museum has opened its stunning new exhibition, Omnia: all and everything, as part of celebrations to mark its 20th anniversary.

Curated to redefine the traditional museum experience, Omnia invites visitors on an immersive journey through the vibrant history, dynamic present and promising future of the Tweed Shire.

Omnia invites guests to see the familiar in an entirely new light, pushing the boundaries of conventional museum displays, offering multiple layers of engagement for all visitors. 

Curated into unusual themes, these objects aim to intrigue and engage visitors by exploring stories such as community resilience, discomfort and danger. A dedicated section titled Tall Tales and True delves into 5 intriguing stories from the collection, inviting visitors to ponder their authenticity. 

Museum Director Molly Green said Omnia breathes new life into traditional collections, redefining the very essence of what a museum can be.

“Featuring more than 200 carefully-selected objects, many of which have never seen the light of day, Omnia is an exploration of our vibrant history," Ms Green said.

"We’ve pushed the boundaries of conventional displays, creating an immersive experience with so many layers of history, stories and wonder for the whole family to delve into."

The exhibition introduces a stunning new rainbow gallery, a wonderland of colour where you can spin a zoetrope, have a chat through vintage rotary phones and find your special place on a giant magnetic map. 

Visitors can step into the immersive world of ‘Mini Murwillumbah’, where wild stories of fires, swamp beer and ghosts intertwine with iconic buildings against the backdrop of Wollumbin.

Join Curator Erika Taylor for Sips and Stories, a tour of Omnia that is full of captivating stories, tall tales and hidden treasures, with more information and booking details on the Museum’s website.
