Summer Display

Royal Memorabilia to Celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday

Contributed by Sue Burgess

We take a light-hearted look at items local people have collected over the Queen’s life time.

These range from home-made royal wedding souvenirs, special edition newspapers and a Coronation tea strainer to more modern die cast models, Jubilee silk knickers and quirky china.

Her Majesty’s love of dogs is reflected by how much, one way and another, corgis are involved.


Art Trail

Brighton University 3D Craft & Design students are once again showing some of their work in the Museum over the summer.  Follow the red dots to see their pieces displayed with the original items from our collection that inspired them.

The students visit us during our winter closure and then use a chosen object from our collection to inspire their ideas. This year they take a fresh look from our iron work, farming, footwear and cache displays and interpret them in thoughtful and sometimes surprising ways.
