Royal Albert Memorial Museum
Lecture | Royal Albert Memorial Museum
Wednesday 21 March 2012 - 13:00 until 16:00
This event celebrates the vital work of the Art Fund and the reopening of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.
Fully refurbished, the Museum has new displays showcasing the collections and collectors that have helped RAMM to become one of Britain’s finest regional museums. They tell the story of Exeter and Devon from the prehistoric to the present but, more than a local museum, its internationally important world cultures and natural history collections also tell a story of global exploration and collecting in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The visit includes a light lunch with a glass of wine, a short address by Stephen Deuchar, Director of the Art Fund on the aims and successes of the Art Fund. The visit will also give you the chance to see items recently acquired with the Art Fund grants.
