Shrewsbury Museum

We had a meeting with Emma-Kate Lanyon – Team Leader (Collections and Curatorial Services) – today to discuss the current display of ‘Alberbury Man’ in a corner of the main gallery. He is in a glass topped-case, under harsh spot-lighting with little or no warning and very little of his story in evidence. Emma-Kate explained that they had hoped to improve the display during the recent total refit and relocation of the museum but that they ran out of budget. However there are plans to potentially engage with a local arts group to create an interpretive installation that has the potential for greatly improving what is currently there. But, again, funding remains an challenge. We, or the museum, would be interested in hearing from anyone with ideas for moving this forward.
