A town like Richmond without a Museum – unthinkable! The idea for a museum for Richmond first surfaced in 1843 but it took over 140 years for this to become reality. Former Museum of Richmond chair and a member of the original Museum steering group, Valerie Boyes, reveals the fascinating story of how the efforts of John Cloake and a group of local residents made the Museum a reality.
