Saltash Heritage Exhibitions

Each year Saltash Heritage Museum changes the theme of the Museum Exhibition.


In 2015 the exhibition was called ‘Tales of the Unexhibited’. This may seem a strange title but over the years Saltash Heritage have collected many interesting artefacts that do not readily fall into a set category. Last year we decided to give them an airing so the exhibition contains an eclectic mix of all sorts on interesting items. Many could be picked up and handled.


Elements of the previous year’s very successful WWI exhibition (2014) had been retained, including the trench, this has been enhanced and the aim is to keep it as a display until the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI
