Orange Regional Museum – School Holiday Activity: Rogues and Rascals

By No Comments

We need your help to identify a criminal suspect on the streets of Sydney! We’ve got their description on file, but a clumsy constable has lost their mugshot. Using the description we have left, we’ll construct an ‘identikit’ image of the suspect and talk about how and why mugshots have been used since cameras were invented to record and identify criminal suspects.

This program is suitable for kids aged 6+ years. Content from the exhibition presented by our educators will be moderated for a younger audience.
