    Welcome to the Museum of Richmond’s April Curator Tour; my name is Esme Loukota and I am the Museum's Curator. As we took the difficult decision to temporarily close in March, I decided to change my scheduled April Curator Tour to an online audio tour instead.

    In terms of the collection we hold about 5,000 objects and we only accept objects relating to the Borough. Mostly these are social and domestic history objects, but we also have a costume and textile collection, a toys and games collection, quite a lot of ephemera, archaeology and some art. Whilst the collection is fairly small we can tell some really interesting stories with it which is hopefully what I am going to do with these objects, some of which are in our galleries and some of which are not usually on display to the public. Enjoy!

  4. 2 Rules and Orders of Tollemache Almshouses
  5. 3 Inhalers
  6. 4 Firewatching Map
  7. 5 Letter from Sarah West to her daughter
  8. 6 Blunderbuss
  9. 7 Automobile Club Poster

    A really interesting collection of objects with excellent commentary on each one & their place in the history of Richmond; it makes me want to see more of the exhibition & of Richmond.

    A fascinating tour around objects I did not know about - great for local residents and those further afield!
