Goodnight, sleep tight
Exhibition at Redcliffe Museum
Soft mattress or firm? Flannelette or Egyptian cotton? Hitting the snooze button or awake with the birds? Sleep is something we all do – and we all do it differently.
Today a good night sleep is a solid eight hours of sleep on a comfy mattress, but how did people sleep in the past? Why did people in Medieval society have two sleeps a night and how did people sleep before all the modern comforts we have today?
From sleepwear to chamber pots, nightcaps to coconut mattresses, discover the history of sleep, how we sleep today and how people might sleep in the future.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
