Exhibitions, 2019 Season

Exhibitions, 2019 Season
Topsham Museum

When: 30 March 2019 to 31 October 2019
Where: Topsham Museum
Time: 1400 - 1700
Cost: None
Suitable for: Any age

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.  

The main exhibition this year 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.  Do come along and learn where the mill was, how it prospered and why it declined.  We will be exhibiting the model made by an apprentice at the mill in the 19th century.

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 will enjoy these new exhibitions!  We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum.  We open on Saturday 30th March.
