Event - Metal Box exhibition opens at Mansfield Museum

An exhibition celebrating one of the town's biggest ever employers has opened at Mansfield Museum.

Metal Box has produced tins in Mansfield for more than 150 years and once employed more than 1,000 people.

The displays tell the story of the company and its former Rock Valley factory through hundreds of tins, original artwork, photographs and interviews with former employees.

Mansfield Metal Box at the Leeming Street museum runs until 7 January 2012.
