Weird and wonderful pieces of history will be on display at Kyneton Museum from Friday.

Macedon Ranges council and Kyneton Historical Society’s joint exhibition, Hobby to Hoarding, will showcase items from the unsual collections of five locals.

Participant Larina Strauch said the show was guided by each person’s individual passions.

Ms Strauch has been collecting souvenir spoons since she was a teenager and inherited some of her collection from her mother.

Cigarette cards that are more than a century old will also be among the items she is contributing.

Other Kyneton Historical Society members have offered up ventriloquist dolls, vintage matchboxes, novelty salt and pepper shakers and The Phantom paraphernalia.

The exhibition will run until January.

Kyneton Museum is open Friday-Sunday from 11am-4pm.
