Stay Curious – The Project
Ilfracombe Museum is full of the weird and the wonderful and our eclectic collections engage and inspire audiences of all ages. Established on the seafront in 1932 by a former museum collector, the museum is independently run and we welcome locals and tourists throughout the year. The surprising range of exhibits and hands-on journey of discovery is part of our unique charm. Our staff and volunteers are especially proud of the strong relationship we have with local families and children and we provide a programme of interactive activity to explore our collections.
The Stay Curious project is inspired by our diverse collections, with our wide range of exhibits offering curiosity and amazement. As we have been closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this project enables us to use our wonderful collections to reconnect, inspire and give back to our community. We have developed an exciting programme of activities and events that you can access online and hopefully, later on in person, between now and the end of June.
Ilfracombe museum is grateful to Art Fund who have made the Stay Curious project possible through their Respond & Reimagine funding programme. Respond & Reimagine is Art Fund’s dedicated Covid 19 support fund for museums and galleries, designed to support innovative projects proposed by the museums, to help them adapt to the challenges of Covid 19.
