MARCH AND DISTRICT MUSEUM RE-OPENS: WE ARE GOOD TO GO
March Museum will reopen again for Heritage Weekend on Saturday 12th September having been shut since March due to the pandemic. The museum will not open on Wednesdays for the time being and Saturday openings for September, October and November will be slightly shorter from 10-30am until 2-30pm. Visitors are politely reminded that the wearing of masks inside the museum is now a legal requirement.
The museum archivist will be on hand on Saturday 12th September to answer visitors’ questions and he is particularly keen to obtain local evidence of the lockdown eg.photographs, signs and personal recollections. There will also be a small exhibition on Pondersbridge kindly loaned by Whittlesey Museum. Were you born at March Maternity Home ? See our new acquisition the iconic sign that graced the outside of the home for many years.
October will see a special exhibition in the museum yard on the Upwell Tramway which will be organised and sponsored by Mr Colin Bedford.
Sadly, the museum’s ever popular Friday night talks have been cancelled for the rest of the year. These will resume in 2021.
March Museum is run entirely by volunteers, if you would like to help our email is email@example.com or become a Museum Society member at £4 per annum and support this vital local institution in preserving the past and informing the future.
