40 Year Anniversary of the Spelthorne Museum



April 3rd, 2020:
During the Covid 19 close down of many interesting places, are you looking for some home schooling history resources? Perhaps you are interested in the heritage of Spelthorne and the Roman origin of Staines. You can now explore some of our museum collection in full 3D and investigate objects from any angle at: https://sketchfab.com/spelthornemuseum


A small example of one of the 3D photos

Here you can investigate what people ate and how food was prepared and stored, understand Roman building materials and look at Roman funerary practices. There is also a fake and some dodgy restoration to find! My favourite model is the fragment of painted wall plaster. It is a very modest piece but tells us how the Roman plasterer and painter went about their work. What is your favourite model? Leave us a ‘like’ or a comment to let us know what you think.



21st March, 2020: CORONAVIRUS: Latest news - As expected Staines Library has now closed down for the duration, and so that means that our Museum is fully closed now, both the Thames Room and the Elmsleigh Room. Keep watching for any updates both on here and on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/190760607732257/)
Thanks for your continued support. Stay safe.
