Window displays at Crewkerne & District Museum have been keeping interest in local history alive during lockdown. The photographic displays of Crewkerne in the olden days are changed regularly, with the current one focusing on South Street. Museum Administrator Janet Harris said: “When you take your daily walk, have a look in the museum window. Our fresh window display has pictures of South Street, with a reminder of what it was like before the car park was created and what being a housewife was like in the 1950s – with lots of baking and home cooked meals. Our housewife has dreams of dancing!”
The museum’s website at www.crewkernemuseum.co.uk offers a virtual tour, inviting you to ‘step inside’ and visit its galleries from the safety of your own home, while waiting for the museum and heritage centre in Market Square to reopen. The museum’s open season is due to start on the first Saturday of April, although this date depends on whether lockdown has been lifted by then and what type of social restrictions are still in place.
