Wessex Museums Brand Story

Our Brand Story is a simple summary of what Wessex Museums is – the work we do, and why and how we do this work. The story came from listening to the volunteers, visitors, trustees and staff of the four partner museums and beyond. It supports our Partnership Charter and looks to our plans 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!
