448 visitors came through the door of Gold Hill Museum during the three days of the May Day Bank Holiday weekend. Apart from the permanent local history displays, there were FIVE temporary exhibitions for them to see. Shaftesbury Camera Club’s exhibition of top-class prints (above) continues in the Garden Room until Friday 06 May. Also available to view until the end of the season are: a magnificent array of fans from the Museum Collection; an insight into the history of Shaftesbury and Tisbury workhouses; a short history of King Canute (who died at Shaftesbury in 1035); and documents, artefacts and photographs from our Heritage Lottery Funded Community Project in a newly-opened show entitled Shaftesbury Remembers the Great War. Admission to all parts of the Museum is free.
