Inside the Museum
7 July 2021
A new film series, Inside the Museum, gives a glimpse behind the scenes at RAMM.
Have you ever wondered what happens when the museum doors are closed? Or who puts up the exhibitions and displays at RAMM? How are delicate textiles conserved? Inside the Museum provides a unique glimpse into the history of RAMM’s building and collections. RAMM’s curators, conservators, technical and front of house teams lead us on a voyage of discovery. They show us rarely-seen objects in RAMM’s stores and introduce the team that makes RAMM such a special place.
From gold bracelets to turkey bones, snail shells to boomerangs, this series of nine short films gives viewers exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the museum.
See garments that once belonged to Queen Victoria and Vivien Leigh. Hear the fascinating story of the Australian aboriginal cricket team’s visit to England. And marvel at the size of the extinct moa’s leg bone!
Amal Ghusain, Exeter City Council’s lead for Communities and Culture said
“RAMM has produced this film series to help people feel closer to Exeter’s much-loved museum; it gives an insight in the work that happens behind the scenes. We are encouraging everyone who has enjoyed these films to sign up to RAMM’s free membership scheme. This shows their support of the museum. By signing up for membership, they will get tailored news and content about the museum; including behind the scenes information as well as special offers from the Shop at RAMM.”
