Frome Museum to open on Remembrance Day

To mark the centenary of the ending of hostilities in November 1918, Frome Heritage Museum will be opening its doors from 10am to 3pm on 11th November, providing the opportunity for local people to consider the huge significance of the Armistice. 

The exhibition “1918 – Adjusting to Peace” has been attracting large numbers of visitors since August but what better time to take in the many artefacts (including a reconstructed section of trench), photographs and reports which primarily focus on the latter stages of the war and on the tentative and sometimes painful transition from conflict to peace. Many of the items on display have very real connections with Frome men and women.

Barry Edwards, trustee at the museum said, “We hope that many folk who attend a ceremony at the weekend to mark this momentous event will be inspired to learn more about the end of war and the beginning of the peace that nobody was to know would last only 20 years or so. If that is the case, why not call in at the museum? Coffee and biscuits will be available and there will be a live recording of the service at the Cenotaph played on a vintage radio followed by music from that era.”

The museum and the exhibition will also be open on Saturday 10th November from 10am until 2pm.
