About this course
Situated in the heart of the County town of Trowbridge, just 18 minutes' train-ride from Bath Spa, Trowbridge Museum occupies the site of what used to be a Norman castle (though none remains today). The Museum explores 1000 years of the town's history from its roots in the Saxon period to its place as a centre for production of the internationally-prized West of England Woollen Cloth. The Museum houses over 21,000 objects in its collection, including significant machinery relating to the cloth industry, and works on events with many local schools and community groups.
The museum is currently embarking on a £1.5 million expansion and renovation project, which will bring with it unique opportunities for interns to work directly with Museum Collections. Tasks are likely to include auditing, Conservation and Collections Care, exhibition research and design.
