National Paralympic Heritage Trust Exhibit Coming Soon
The Museum has been working hard with colleagues from the National Paralympic Heritage Trust (NPHT) to create a 3-D exhibit linking the work of James Gillingham to the modern-day Paralympics. This exhibit is only available in the Museum at this time but, when it is created in a new platform it will be available via our website.
Food as History - Memories of World War 2
Chard Museum recently held a Food As History day, as part of Heritage Open Days. Members and visitors tried their hand at various war time recipes, which were interesting to say the least!
As part of this celebration we are sharing some of the interviews from our Digital Archives, where local people talk about their experiences in World War 2.
Memories of Children Evacuated To Chard
As a youngster what must it have been like to be transported away from your Mum and close family. Your Dad was probably serving in the forces, and here you are stuck in the country in Chard.
Here is an interactive programme sharing some of the experiences of those youngsters who arrived in Chard.
Wonders of Chard Museum
If you have visited Chard Museum or are planning a visit, you will be given an opportunity to select your favourite artefact.
You can then share with us, why you selected that specific object and what makes it significant to you. We have provided some examples that our volunteers have shared with us.
Chard Remembers - Share Your Pandemic Experiences
Life is completely different for all of us. How we live, work, shop and interact is radically different and we want to ensure that this is reflected in our archived collections.
Chard Museum is launching a project asking people to share their experiences and memories of the coronavirus pandemic.
