Excavator bucket installation

Excavator bucket installation

The National Museum has started moving the large technology objects into the Landmarks gallery. One particular challenge involved moving a rock shovel bucket into the gallery. Donated by Rio Tinto, the bucket was part of an excavator used to mine iron ore at Mount Tom Price in Western Australia. Here's how the Museum moved the 15-tonne object into the gallery space.
