Current Exhibition in the Moody Museum:In 2018 we set up a new project collecting oral histories. The current display in the Moody Museum is the result of conversations with people who worked at Wills Tomato Nursery in Romsey which closed in 1982. We hope you enjoy this new venture.
An archive of past exhibitions from our temporary exhibition space:
WW1 - Romsey Boys and their part in the Great War2 November 2015 - 30 January 2016 This exhibition focussed on the local boys of Romsey and the part they played in WW1. As well as details about where they were sent to fight and how many returned home, this exhibition also included poetry and letters written by some of the 1330 boys and men who were sent from Romsey and its surronding villages to serve either in the armed forces or merchant navy.
The Bare Necessities - an Exhibition on Underwear1 February 2016 - 27 April 2016
This exhibition detailed the history and evolution of this basic but essential item of clothes wear from ancient times to the present day. The exhibition showed how a Victorian lady dressed for receiving visitors, and also explained how terms such as chemise, boomers and drawers entered the English Dictionary.
