Gallery stories for the refurbished Peterborough museum
Peterborough Museum won funds from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a revitalised museum. We wrote copy for several galleries. The curatorial team handed us their research files together with the content plans for each exhibit and trusted us to find the stories – and the snippets of humour – that brought the history and artefacts to life. This page contains a few panels from a series about the building itself.
The building used to be a hospital. In the roof there’s an original operating theatre from the earliest days of antiseptic surgery – see image directly above.
