The Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery opened its doors in 1868. For more than 150 years RAMM has been a beacon for cultural and social life in Exeter and beyond. Following a major extension and the award of Art Fund Museum of the Year in 2012, it continues to inspire young and old, and be an important part of the cultural landscape in Devon.

How does RAMM continue to develop, meet challenges and thrive?

Join the Friends of RAMM to hear a wide range of speakers from arts and funding organisations, universities and others discuss their connections with RAMM and look to the future. It promises to be a stimulating afternoon and a fitting celebration of RAMM’s achievements.
