Amazing Time Travel to Miles Historical Museum

On Tuesday 15th of September, year 5/6 went back in time to the Miles Historical Museum. We departed from Tara Shire State College at 9:00am and arrived at Miles at 10:00am. When we got off the bus, we had morning tea and then we were checked in at the office.
After we had finished our snack, we then split up into groups of about 4-5 students and went with an adult to tour the village. Each group member was given a booklet which we had to fill out while we went around the village. Each group started at a different place in the village like the shop, post office or school house.
One of my group’s favourite places was the hospital. The hospital contained many interesting rooms with different dummies acting like nurses, patients or even crying babies. There were lots of fascinating and amazing services and equipment there too. We learnt a lot about all the different machines and services that the doctors and nurses used in the past.
Another remarkable place we visited was the train station. At the train station we saw the old steam train and inside the carriage. We also looked at the S.M office.
After we had toured our way around the village it was time to head back. We had a fantastic day and we thank all of the staff and parents for helping us have a fantastic day.
