In colonial times sample rooms were available for hire by commercial travellers to display their goods, usually drapery and hardware. They were also popular spaces to hold meetings and community events, and even to lay out the dead!

Groups or individuals are welcome to use this room for displaying their goods during events and open days, please book by email
