Port Macquarie Museum got into the spirit of International Museum Selfie Day on Wednesday with almost 120 visitors taking advantage of free entry and the opportunity to take a selfie with the collection.
Visitors of all ages explored the Museum's exhibitions and collections, documenting their visit with photographs using a branded frame and selfies.
Port Macquarie Museum volunteer curator Debbie Sommers says most of the visitors were attracted by the free entry.
"They may not have visited us otherwise and it is certainly a fun way to get them through the doors, and to share our wonderful museum with them," she said.
"Most were surprised not only by our exhibitions but also the size and scope of our museum.
"We are hoping they will become return visitors in the future.
"Visitors were from places as far away as Perth, England and Wales, with most of them spending several days or longer holidaying in our town. Locals also came along with their children and grandchildren.
"It is always enjoyable to see young children guiding their parents and grandparents around the museum."
Ms Sommers said the museum has regularly changing exhibitions which means most people will see something new each time they visit
The majority of our Selfie Day participants had not visited the museum before.
"The day is targeted at visitors to Port Macquarie for the holidays and particularly families looking for an alternative to spending the day at the beach.
"Museum Selfie Day is now one of our regular public programs," Ms Sommers said.
The Port Macquarie Museum also offers free entry on the first Sunday of each month.
