Preparations are well underway for the World War One exhibition at the museum. The first draft of the bilingual interpretive panels will be undergoing proof reading this weekend (that’s my Sunday mapped out!) and the gallery is undergoing refurbishment with new lighting and dry lining and plastering taking place over the next few weeks. There will then be painting of the new flat walls (hurrah!) and manoeuvring the display furniture into place. I spent some time this morning with Seimon over at The Tin Shed Experience in Laugharne who are kindly lending the museum some WW1 artefacts and other artefacts and archive from the museum’s collection will act as further illustrative materials.
There will also be a section in the exhibition prepared by students of Greenhill School including a series of piece to camera regarding the causes and effects of the war.
The exhibition has been funded by HLF who also funded the museum publication, Tenby Remembers, available at the museum at the very affordable price of £6.99.
