After the summer visitors have left, one of the many things that happen behind the scenes in the Museum is the preparation of new, temporary exhibitions for 2019. 
 
The main exhibition in 2019 will be the Countess Wear Paper Mill, which produced paper for newsprint and bank notes from around 1650 until 1885.  John Dunsford has done much of the research for this exhibition, assisted by Mark Dant.  In the tea room, there'll be photographs showing Countess Wear scenes, to support the main Paper Mill exhibition.  The plinth in the Sail Loft will be used for children’s activities during the school holidays, while in term-time until July, the Trefoil Guild are mounting a display to celebrate their story.

Sections of the ‘Topsham in the 1920s’ audio tapes which featured in this year’s Topsham Times, are being compiled to form an audio-visual show on one of the Museum’s screens.

Hope you enjoy these new exhibitions next year!
