Details

A town like Richmond without a Museum – Unthinkable! The idea for a museum for Richmond first surfaced in 1843 but it took over 140 years for this to become reality. Come and hear Valerie Boyes, a member of the original Museum steering group and an ex Chair of the Museum Board reveal the fascinating story of how the efforts of John Cloake and a group of local residents made the Museum a reality.
