Remarkables recall the past...

Why did the miners go to this building?  

  • Remarkables recall the past...Why did the miners go to this building?

Today saw the Year 7 & 8s from Remarkables Primary visit the museum as part of their GOLD 150 inquiry. They participated in three activities - life as a miner, detective work in the museum and an historic walk down Arrowtown's main street.

What can you remember.....Who first discovered gold in Arrowtown? What are the three types of gold found in NZ? How many mining methods can you name? Where on the main street might a miner leave his horse for a night? How do you make butter?

We hope you enjoyed your day with us and would love to hear your comments on this blog!!
