In the kitchen at the Museum of Cambridge, one of my favourite objects sits on a shelf with some other fascinating food preparation items – including what may be one of the earliest mechanical food mixers on the shelf above.
In a museum like ours, looking after our collection and our building is everyone’s job. The Museum of Cambridge holds more than 25,000 items donated to it over the last 85 years from people across Cambridgeshire and we are caretakers of the 400 year old White Horse Inn. Everything that we do is about looking after and sharing the stories of our objects.
The Museum of Cambridge has announced its latest Annual Appeal: ‘Saving Our Stories’ which aims to raise significant funds to support the Museum to care for its large collection of objects.
