Reception This Way
Embark on a journey down memory lane and rediscover the quintessential Australian experience of staying at a motel at The Workshops Rail Museum’s newest exhibition. Aussies love a road trip. Hitting the road and exploring provides us with the ultimate freedom, so it is no wonder Australians have embraced the American concept of the motel. Presenting a new, stylish and more sophisticated way to travel in the 1950s motels have marked their place in Australian history. Now, you can take a nostalgic trip back in time with the new exhibition Reception this way: motels – a sentimental journey with Tim Ross, offering visitors the chance to travel around Australia and revisit the memorises of the classic Aussie motel. From family holidays and long road trips in the sweltering summer heat, to continental breakfasts and mid-century mod cons, this exhibition has it all! Reception this way is developed by National Archives of Australia in collaboration with comedian Tim Ross, and proudly hosted by The Workshops Rail Museum.
