Thame Museum, like some many others, had to shut its doors earlier this year with COVID restrictions. Now with COVID safe provisions in place it has now been able to reopen. John visited them to see what changes they had made during lockdown and to celebrate the re-opening.
John said: "It was great to be back at the museum and to share the excitement of re-opening with the hard-working team of volunteers. The team had taken advantage of lockdown to make some improvements to the museum and to refresh some of the collections. Congratulations to all for their perseverance this year and their excellent improvements."
Thame Museum tells the story of the market town through its fine collection of objects, photographs and documents related to the Thame area. These feature in both permanent displays and temporary exhibitions which change throughout the year.
Opening hours are currently limited to Wednesdays and Saturdays between 10am and 4pm.
John added: "It is well worth a visit if you can make it. Not matter how many times you go there is always something new to learn. I would encourage local residents and anyone with an interest in the local history of the area to go along."
