Our impact

Our latest Impact Report outlines the achievements of our partnership 2022 – 2023. Measuring our impact helps us reflect and make a commitment to progress in the partnership.  The report provides insights into the differences we have made, and outlines the significance of our work. 

Kristina Broughton, Wessex Museums Chief Executive Officer, said: 

“2022 – 2023 will forever be remembered by Wessex Museums as ‘the year of Hardy’, as we delivered our most ambitious partnership exhibition to date. But the year was certainly about more than just that.”

Read the report and discover our stories, successes, and milestones, from ground breaking exhibitions to community engagement. 

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!
