The visitors were shown various areas of the Museum by volunteers Iris Ansell, Sue Morgan and Margaret Williams. Museum Secretary Michael Downes told them something of the life and career of Henry Carter FRS, the Victorian physician, geologist and marine sponge expert who himself was a member of the Devonshire Association, though only briefly.
The impressive display in the Costume Room is always of interest for visitors. The DA members were met here by Iris Ansell, right.
Not often seen by visitors are the Museum's costume storage facilities in the Linhay. Thousands of items in every kind of material are kept here in controlled conditions.
