Marlow Museum reopens!

| |

After months of being closed due to lockdown, Marlow Museum opened its front door to visitors once again on Wednesday 19 May at Court Garden.

The main photo above shows museum volunteers including Committee Chair Mike Hyde holding the “Open” sign. MyMarlow was there to take photos, and Mike actually asked me to officially cut the ribbon! I was an ex- committee member years ago, so not quite as random as it might seem, but it was an honour and a bit of fun too 😉

The current exhibitions are ‘The Story of MARLOW’ from 5,000 years ago, and ‘The Vansittart Family at Bisham Abbey’.

Opening times will be Sat/Sun 1-5pm, Wed 2-5pm, and the expected face-mask and limited numbers rules are in place of course.

Entry is FREE and it’s really is worth a visit to learn a bit more about our town’s history and heritage. The website marlowmuseum.org features ‘Objects in Focus’ so why not visit to see the items in person?

Can you help?

June 1 – 7 is Volunteers Week when we celebrate all the people who help run the museum – are you interested in being a Museum Steward or helping us in some way such as Media Studies, Membership, Librarian or helping with research? Come and talk to us or contact us via marlowmuseum.org
