Heritage exploration: Martinborough museum

Museum, complete with rotary telephone and manual typewriter as museum worthy artefacts Museum, complete with rotary telephone and manual typewriter as museum worthy artefacts

A museum that is a walk through someone’s house where there are no barriers or glass, simply the owners have left visitors to wander through at will. A wonderful immersive experience that makes you feel right at home in an Edwardian setting. Although the very slim, beautiful wedding dress harkes to a time when size of individuals reflected the hard physical labour that exacted a toll on the body. Then there is the kitchen area with its washing still on the suspended ceiling racks, beautifully decorated and just waiting for the owner to fold the tea towels away.

The museum is located in the 1894 library and reading room designed by Charles Natusch. In 1906 accommodation was added for the librarian and his family. Up until 1980 the library continued to operate from the premises.

Opening hours 10.30 to 3.30pm Saturday and Sunday. The museum is managed and operated by volunteers. Admission fees, none, however donations are welcome.

VISIT DURATION 2 hours.
