Whilst the museum may be closed currently to the public, there is a hive of industry buzzing away behind the scenes. It was decided last year to update the Images of Witchcraft and Persecution sections of the museum and to also look at how to tell the story of the museum's foundation and history. The museum team have been working on how best to tell this story and visitors can look forward to not only seeing this but a revamped shop space too.
Simon paid a visit to Cambridge to negotiate the donation of some wonderful old Victorian cabinets, from the Museum of Zoology, who are currently updating their displays. The new cabinets will allow for more material to be displayed and are all very much in keeping with the museum's spirit.
Expect more updates over the coming weeks as work begins in ernest. It promises to be an exciting 2015 for the museum.
