RAMM open as normal as roof repair works get underway
Published: 26 October 2023
Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum is open as usual as work gets underway to repair the roof at the iconic building.
Earlier this year it was revealed that RAMM had been awarded £498,000 funding for roof repair works on the Victorian building in Queen Street.
RAMM was one of four museums in the region to benefit from funding for “urgent museum maintenance and infrastructure works”.
The museum will remain open throughout the entirety of the works, although some individual galleries will need to close temporarily while work is taking place.
And of course, RAMM’s permanent galleries remain open. Discover Devon and Exeter’s rich history and global connections, be delighted by colourful animals, birds and insects, step into a world of innovative art, and travel the globe as you explore the museum.
RAMM is currently hosting the free Hollow Earth exhibition - Art, Caves and the Subterranean Imaginary.
Hollow Earth is a major thematic art exhibition bringing together a wide range of responses to the image and idea of the cave. It includes painting, photography, sculpture, and video, as well as objects from RAMM’s collection, from ancient history through to modern and contemporary art.
