Volunteers at the Lambing Flat Chinese Festival are expressing delight at the recent installation of air condition at the museum. The museum was closed for a few days during the fit out.
The air conditioning has been welcomed by all those who work in the building and has made the environment more comfortable for the many people who visit.
