HISTORY LESSON: Mic Noble, Lindel Walters and Graham Filkins are preparing for the upcoming Logan Historical Museum open day.

EMBARK on a journey back in time to experience some of the world's most memorable moments in history at the upcoming Logan Historical Museum's open day.

Discover what life was like from a few centuries ago right up to the present day at the Through the Ages exhibit on Sunday July 15.

Logan Historical Museum events manager Lindel Walters said the day would be a real life history lesson.

"Here at the museum, we cover everything to do with history, so we thought instead of having a limited time frame, we would call it Through the Ages so then people can explore any period throughout time," Mrs Walters said.

"There is no start date and no end date to this open day, so the time periods can go from cave men right up to the 1970's or 1980's."

Stalls and information booths will be set up through the museum which will allow people to leisurely stroll through time.

"Anybody is welcome to hold a free stall on the day, but they have to pick a period in history and do their gazebo and costumes to match that era," Mrs Walters said.

"We are also hoping anyone out in the community who may have something old that they would like to show on the day, to please let us know about it."

Hoping to make this an annual family day, Mrs Walters said there would be plenty of activities to entertain everybody.

"We have been researching what kinds of games kids played during different eras," she said.

"So some of the old fashioned games we will be playing will be Simon says, musical chairs, apple bobbing and a water melon eating competition.

"The museum will also set up a milk bar and serve good old fashioned milkshakes and hamburgers."

If you are interested in having a stall at the Logan Historical Museum Through the Ages event, you can phone Lindel on 0435 909 570.

The event will be held at the Logan Historical Museum at the Kingston Butter Factory on Sunday, July 15 from 10am until 2pm.

The Kingston Butter Factory is located on Milky Way Lane, Kingston.
