Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM)
Museum in Exeter
Known affectionately by locals simply as “the RAMM,” the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery is Exeter’s largest and most important cultural attraction. In 2011 this museum dating back 1868 was reopened to wide acclaim following a £24m refurbishment.
Highlights of a visit include exploring the museum’s large collection of nearly a million artefacts related to zoology, anthropology, geology, and archaeology. While only a fraction of this huge collection is on display at any one time in its 16 galleries, exhibits and information is laid out in an easy-to-follow and compelling manner using state-of-the-art technology.
The RAMM has also built up a solid reputation for its impressive collection of artworks. It’s also a popular stop for traveling exhibits from other galleries across the globe, with temporary exhibits changing frequently in addition to regular educational programs and workshops for both kids and adults. A café and gift shop are located on the premises.
