See beautiful vintage Christmas decorations in the Melbourne Museum Foyer.

From beads and glass baubles, a feather Christmas tree to glass bird ornaments. The objects have been generously loaned to Museum Victoria by collectors Rob and Lee-ann Hamilton from regional Victoria.

Like most collectors, their passion reminds them of growing up:

'For most of us, Christmas brings fond memories of childhood; of being around the Christmas tree with our family. For us, collecting decorations brings back childhood memories; the laughter, the smell of scrumptious treats, the reading of Christmas stories, but especially the decorating of the tree.'
