Oh my yes it's getting to that time of year again where local attractions up and down the country celebrate our national heritage with Heritage Open Days! The Maldon Museum in the Park, along with lots of other attractions and heritage sites in Maldon will be running special events over the course of the week.
The Maldon Museum in the Park will be hosting extra events next Saturday and Sunday which will include two meet 'n' greets! On the Saturday between 1-4pm you can meet and talk with David Lambert, formally the official photographer for the Tate galleries in a role he held for nearly 50 years! He has a wealth of experience in photography and he also co-curated our Maldon 'Now and Then' exhibition including the loaning of a large vintage postcard display of Maldon. On the Sunday between 2-4pm we will be hosting David Patient who will be discussing the history of one of Maldon's oldest industry, boat building! He will also be talking about his excellent book 'One of Howards' the history of boat bulding of John Howard.
As this year's theme for HOD is "Edible England" we will also be hosting a small display on Maldon Salt. There are also children's activities available with a minature fossil dig out in the Courtyard (weather dependant) and arts 'n' crafts and children's books in our Reading Corner in Room 9.
No pre-booking necessary however be aware that our Volunteer Stewards on duty that day may ask larger groups to wait at the door for a short time if the Museum is deemed too crowded in certain areas. Face masks and hand sanitizers are available but are not mandatory.

On a lovely and very busy afternoon down at the Maldon Museum in the Park we witnessed the unveiling of a new palaentological display in our outdoor noticeboard of London Clay Fossils which are fossils that are found on the east coast and the Dengie in particular. This display was created and unveiled at the ceremony by Jennie Donnelly who runs fossil collecting tours down at Creeksea and Jon Greaves who is an author and artist and has written a book on London Clay fossils. If you are interested in fossils, especially those found on the Dengie and the east coast then please get in touch.
