PROMPT November 2nd

You are curator of a museum. This museum has an area of interest to you. Take us on a guided tour of your latest exhibition.

Welcome to the West Australian Museum. The building is almost new. We are still allowing free entry for everyone. This will change soon, so before a charge of $15 per adult kicks in, take advantage to view this amazing building. There’ll be no charge though for children and there’s so much to keep them entertained here.
For instance my favourite corner of this vast museum is a collection of childhood toys. Dated 1887-97 this is a complete collection of 150 toys belonging to the six children of Perth’s first Anglican Archbishop. The collection contains toys and games of children’s play, child rearing, and schooling items. There are costumes, books and items reflective of home life in WA. It is the Riley Family Collection. Some of the toys are in pristine condition. Toy soldiers and dolls perhaps only to be played with on special occasions. So different to the plastic toys that today’s kids use a few times and throw away into landfill.
How these toys were so lovingly kept for so long remains a mystery to me.
