A Virtual Tour of Moyse’s Hall Museum
Take a look around Moyse’s Hall with a new virtual tour.
Tour around the downstairs Social History section with beautiful Medieval artefacts and gory Crime and Punishment. Take a look upstairs at the new ‘East Anglian Artists and Their Contemporaries’ exhibition to see Print work by Sybil Andrews, Strutt, Bunbury and Rowlandson. Portraits by Beale, Tissot, Kauffman, Lely and Rose Mead.
The museum will be setting quizzes and ‘find hidden objects’ using this tour via Facebook over the coming weeks.
Dan Clarke at Moyse’s Hall tells us more about the development of their new virtual tour.
Moyse’s Hall were kindly approached by digital photographic specialist, David Carpenter, via ‘Bury St Edmunds and Beyond’, (www.visit-burystedmunds.co.uk) to see if he could help the museum during lockdown. David scanned the building with his 360-degree camera and worked with the Heritage team to add information points on a few items from within the collection.
As a result of the offer, the team of West Suffolk Heritage Service from West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village and Moyse’s Hall, created a new display in three galleries upstairs; to give people something different to explore during lockdown.
A huge thank you to David for helping our museum through lockdown and giving us and our visitors a treat. We’ve worked in this building for years but seeing it from all angles was a real delight. More information on David’s work, and other historic sites scanned, can be found here: website: dcpropertyphotography.com or Facebook: @dcpropertyphotography
And thank you to ‘Bury St Edmunds and Beyond’ for the introduction – as always your tireless work in helping the sites of our town and further afield are welcomed and appreciated.
