Outreach

Talks:

The Museum of Richmond aims to bring the history of Richmond and the surrounding area to life in exciting and varied ways for people of all ages and from all backgrounds. We offer a growing programme of talks that can be booked by groups of 10 or more, often for groups who cannot come into the museum. Groups we have recently visited include FiSh in Barnes and the Richmond Afternoon Forum.

Feedback includes: “I have just got back home and would like to thank you for your interesting and informative talk this afternoon.   Every one of the members was fully engaged with your subject, and passing around the artefacts you had brought with you helped to stimulate conversation.” 

Talk topics currently include:
Old Palace Lane
The Story of the Royal Star and Garter Home

Highlights of the Costume Collection
30 Years of the Museum of Richmond

Richmond and the Railway
The Royals and Richmond Palace
Toys Through the Ages
Victorian Richmond
Medicine in Richmond

Reminiscence Sessions:

The Museum of Richmond offers reminiscence sessions on a variety of topics. These sessions use objects from the museum’s handling collection to stimulate group discussion and shared experiences. Recently we have worked with the Caring Cafe in Sheen. Handling toys from the past meant clients shared memeories of childhood as well as resulting in impromptu skipping and games of skittles!

“Just an e mail to say thank you very much for a lovely session with the Victorian/Tudor  toys on Saturday. The feedback from the clients was very positive , they very much enjoyed the afternoon as did the staff & volunteers.”

Please email learning@museumofrichmond.com or call 020 8332 11414 to discuss what we can offer for your particular group.
