Rochester's Opperman Sports Museum curators Judy Anderson and Ben Winspear at the Rochester Community Hub.
The Oppy museum recently renamed itself the Opperman Sports Museum and is now open to the public.
Rochester Development Committee (which looks after the museum) president Peter Anderson began moving Sir Hubert Opperman memorabilia from the museum’s old premises at the railway station to the Rochester Community Hub two months ago.
Curators Judy Anderson and Ben Winspear finished the museum’s layout recently.
Mr Anderson said it was now open to the public, however the official opening will be performed by ex-Australian netball captain Sharelle McMahon.
He said he was awaiting a collage sports panel of the netball star to arrive before the opening can be arranged.
He said panels of other sporting clubs would also be displayed at the museum.
