From 10am – 1pm Heritage Service staff will bring collections out of the store for you to explore. Look through the receipts from the Thrust project, read some of the personal correspondence of yacht designer Uffa Fox, and browse photographs and archives from the first hovercraft designed on the Isle of Wight. We will also bring some of our amazing replica archaeological items for you to handle and hold.

The exhibition is part of the Hidden Heroes project which features displays, talks and workshops at museums and galleries across the Isle of Wight. Find out more about our remarkable people, remarkable stories and our remarkable Island at the Website.
