There will be a special free event at Matthews Hall, Topsham on Sunday 19th January. If you find it difficult to get to Topsham Museum on the Strand, this is your opportunity to have a look at some of the displays that can be seen there. Or perhaps it will whet your appetite to visit the Museum when we re-open on Saturday 28th March 2020.
Learn how the museum works, purchase one of the museum publications. Find out how you could become involved as a volunteer in the many different activities that take place at the museum or if you aren’t able to volunteer, consider supporting the Museum by becoming a Member.
We will be displaying some interesting old maps of Topsham. At 2 pm there will be a talk given by volunteers from the Museum about the maps. Using these maps, we can locate the various Market Gardens which are the subject of next year’s main exhibition. The talk will start at 2 pm and last about an hour; admission is free and there is no need to pre-book a seat.
Do come along and bring the family to have a look around and have a chat with us. We will be open from 11am until 3pm – so perhaps pop in during your Sunday walk. Coffee and refreshments will be available.
