This special event focuses on Ballarat in times of war in the lead up to "Are You Going Too?" exhibition which opens in November and "Overpaid, Over Sexed and Over Here?" which was on display earlier this year about the friendly invasion by the U.S. Marines during World War II.
Memories of Wartime Ballarat will feature authentic artefacts, photos from POW camps, vintage and classic cars, uniformed troops from World War I and US marines from World War II and more.
You'll be able to view the five postcards sent by Ballarat resident, David Manning who was a Prisoner of War (POW) on the Thai-Burma Railway for three and a half years.
