Trowbridge Museum is empty

We did it! With the amazing support, help, hard work and expertise of the staff and volunteers, the collections of Trowbridge Museum are now safely into secure, temporary storage for the next couple of years whilst the major museum refit takes place. Our target was to have everything out or protected on site by the end of the year, so we’re actually ahead of schedule!

It was a great team effort – and thanks must go to:

Jamie Briggs Removals and Storage

ThermoLignum

Dorothea Restorations

who all brought their skill, expertise, patience and in some cases just sheer muscle to the job.

Huge thanks too to Hanne and Hannah at the museum, who battled budgets, boxes and bruises to make sure things happened on the right days and in the right order. It was great working with you. Putting it all back will be easy after this!

With this phase now complete I’m stepping back from proceedings as the museum team start the exciting job of planning what the new museum will look like. Can’t wait to see it.
