Unwrapped and in the spotlight

23rd May 2017 - 31st August 2017 at Frome Museum

A celebration of some of the rarely seen objects from the natural sciences collections at Frome Museum.

The majority of museums contain far more objects than they can possible display to the public.   Frome Museum is no exception.  We have some fantastic treasures in our natural sciences collections that are rarely seen.  So, the museum plans to unwrap these and put them on show over the summer months to encourage more people to visit.

Simon Carpenter, volunteer curator at Frome Museum, says “As well as items from our museum, I will be borrowing some fabulous cut and polished geodes from Bristol Museum, that originally came from Dulcote Quarry in the Mendips.  Frome Museum has also recently taken ownership of part of a rare marine reptile fossil that will be displayed for the first time.  And there will be lots of other treasures to inspire you”.
