I have some good news to share, the pop-up has been shortlisted for the Cornwall Heritage Awards with the new Victorian Christmas exhibition attracting nearly 100 visitors the first day we opened!
Unfortunately, the pop-up will not reopen again before Christmas due to the pandemic and will reopen on the 22nd Feb next year. However, it has been a wonderful opportunity to showcase the museum and increase our visibility in the town whilst the main building is being restored. We will find out whether or not we win in February. A big thank you to Joe, Tiziana, Ann, Sylvia, Julie and Claire for their help with the displays.
The operations team have been hard at work cataloging and conserving our marvellous collection throughout the year. The costume department has had special attention to make sure all the delicate materials are safely stored before the building renovations begin.
Over the past year your support has been even more critical in keeping the museum going and I send you my thanks and best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
