Museum of Dartmoor Life, Okehampton A Volunteer’s View
Okehampton’s Museum of Dartmoor Life opens at Easter for another season. It is easy to find, just a few yards from the White Hart Hotel through the wrought iron gates and into a pretty flower filled ancient cobbled courtyard. The Museum is nestled at the end in an old mill building housing exhibitions and displays and the tourist information service.
Come inside and you will be greeted by our friendly knowledgeable volunteers. The museum is housed on three floors and tells ‘the people’s story’ of 5000 years of life and work on Dartmoor. Make your way to the top and start your journey through time in the Bronze Age hut. On this floor amongst many more exhibits is a touch screen display and Victorian cottage complete with a pair of bloomers left to dry on the fire guard.
The John Young gallery can be found on the middle floor and this year there will be a series of photographic and art exhibitions starting in April and running throughout the year. In July and August Okehampton primary school will hold their annual exhibition. Their work is always of a high standard and this year their exhibition is entitled Two Rivers. We look forward to hosting the school again and hope you will find the time to come and see it. This is also where we hold our Tea and Talks starting this year on April 21st with a talk by Dartmoor National Park ranger Rob Taylor telling us about a year in a Ranger's life. There will be diverse and interesting series of talks throughout the year. You can find out about these by contacting the Museum, in the local press or by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
The Agricultural Gallery can be found on the ground floor here you will find a blacksmith's shop, a horse drawn farm wagon and from the 20th century a wonderful old 1922 Bullnose Morris farm pick-up and an early example of that modern workhorse that no farm could be without, a bright red David Brown Tractor, made in Huddersfield in 1946. These exhibits are favourites with dads and children alike. There is of course a lot more to interest and puzzle you. These are just some of my personal favourites.
We are a family friendly museum with plenty of activities for children throughout the year. We start over the Easter week end with an Easter theme of Egg decorating, Easter letterboxing and Dartmoor crosses trail. We look forward to meeting you all in 2016 and hope that you will find the time to pay us a visit. After your visit you may like to browse in our Museum shop where you will find pocket money priced toys and games for the children, cards and preserves and much much more. After your visit to us why not take tea in the Victorian Pantry Tea room and take a look at the craft shop also in the Museum Courtyard?
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the museum. We are always looking for more volunteers so if you have a few hours to spare why not contact our manager Andrew Thompson on 01837 52295 or manager@museumofdartmoorlife.co.uk.
