A pause for reflection – our 2020/21 Impact Report

We spend so much time racing forward in our jobs that we rarely pause to look back. Our annual Impact Report does just that – a round-up of our achievements as a partnership in the previous year.

Obviously, 2020 was a year of enormous challenge for Wessex Museums and our partners. With the museums closed to the public for much of 2020, and again in 2021, coupled with the social, political and economic impact of the pandemic and other global events on our organisations and society as a whole, much of our strategic plan simply had to change.

Read the Impact Report to see how we adapted our plans, what we achieved, and what our aims are for the future.

Wild Life in the Red

What do you think about our exhibition?

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
