Detail from the Museum’s plan of the Richmond Workhouse.

23rd September 2017 – 22nd April 2018

The exhibition will look at Richmond during the period 1600-1948, from the point of view of the poorer classes. This will include the history of Richmond’s Workhouse, Almshouses and the effects of the Poor Laws. As well as telling the story of an often overlooked class of people, the exhibition will look at individual people and their experiences of poverty.

 

This exhibition will be be based upon a new publication from Richmond Local History Society and has kindly been funded by the Richmond Parish Lands Charity, the Richmond Charities and the Barnes Workhouse Fund.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

In 2018, we are planning an exciting Exhibition on Archaeology found in the area. We are currently looking at funding and sponsorship for this exhibition, so please get in touch if you would be interested in supporting us!
