Default Is the Dulwich museum still running ?

I've rang them twice, it goes through to an answer phone, I left a message as the say they will get back ASAP, but don't.
I've e-mailed, with no response.

The web site talks about events for 2019 but none for this year.

I appreciate they will be volunteers, but wondering if it's worth chasing up as I am visiting London at the end of the month and it would have been great to visit the museum.

Yup - still up and running well.

I am surprised they didn't get back to you as Eileen is good with sort of thing.

PM me your number as I am over there tomorrow and will get them to contact you.

Cheers for now

Dave

We visited the museum and had a great afternoon.

What a friendly team of curators there.

Hopefully, I'll be able to return in the future.

Glad to hear it! The museum is fortunate in that the team are all enthusiasts and are genuinely pleased to welcome visitors.

We are moving forwards and the dates for all this years events are now on the website https://bvwtm.org.uk/

All are welcome and you do not need to be a member of the friends group or the BVWS, just be a bit keen on old radio's and telly's as there is lots to see.

Hi Pete

Good to see it working, it is an excellent addition to the collection and demonstrates the uniqueness of the Dulwich museum.

To be able to see exhibits like this working close up and talk to people who understand them is rare in any museum but has always been in the ethos of our museum.

Gerry would be happy!

Dave
