The Box News
The new development is on schedule and is still due to open in the Spring 2020. The opening exhibition will be "Mayflower 400:Legends and Legacy". The exhibition will focus on the people involved, both the voyagers and the people they met on the other side of the Atlantic. this will be an outstanding exhibition with international interest, bringing together exhibits that have never been seen in the UK before, such as :
- The Second Pierce Patent (the planning permission for - a settlement in the New World),
- Jane - a reconstruction of a female settler who died at a young age from the Smithsonian,
- The cooper's bible
- a Wampanoag pot
There will be over 100 items from various museums. However many of these items will need restoration an special packaging for transit. The Museum would like the Friends' help in raising £25,000 to cover these additional costs.
Please donate to the Friends now.
