French connection

Our trustees, volunteers and staff like to visit other museums to pick up practical tips and  creative ways of exhibiting and telling stories. One of our trustees recently visited a small museum in southern France that shared many similarities with the Museum of Dartmoor Life. Much like our museum, the Museum of Old Mazères is based in a three-storey house in the centre of a small medieval town. Interesting techniques included the use of 3D scanner type exhibits to show the detail on corroded metal objects.
