Objects of the week – Bassetlaw Museum
In November, shortly after starting at Bassetlaw Museum, it was agreed that I would be able to put together weekly temporary displays featuring one or a collection of interesting objects from the museum’s collections not previously displayed in the museum. These are intended to provide a constantly changing feature in the museum for both regular visitors and to attract new visitors too.
Between November and Christmas there have been 4 temporary displays, featuring fossilised coral, 1930s hats, an ordnance survey map and vintage Christmas decorations.
For 2017, there are many more interesting displays planned, including a few relating to the Victorian period in the run up to the Steampunk event being held at the museum on 11th February. So if you would like to discover some of the interesting objects held at Bassetlaw Museum, new displays are installed every Thursday and can be viewed in the foyer display cabinet.
