From a ‘haunted’ dress to Queen Victoria’s blanket: what mysteries lie behind the scenes at Bridport Museum?
Bridport Museum cares for approximately 50,000 objects- not all of which can go on display at one time. Caring for them poses many challenges: is there enough space in the store rooms? How do we stop them from being eaten by pests? How do we ensure we can maintain the right conditions to conserve them for the longer term?
This collaborative exhibition curated by volunteers from Bridport Museum, will reveal some of the challenges faced in looking after their textile collection.
The preview will be held in Bridport Art Centre’s Allsop Gallery
Friday 22 June, 5.30 – 7pm
