Fully refurbished after a multimillion pound redevelopment, the new displays showcase the collections and collectors that have helped RAMM to become one of Britain’s finest regional museums.

They tell the story of Exeter and Devon from the prehistoric to the present but, more than a local museum, its internationally important world cultures and natural history collections also tell a story of global exploration and collecting in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Original architectural features have been revealed allowing visitors to experience the splendour of the original Victorian spaces. The extension includes a suite of modern, flexible exhibition galleries allowing RAMM to bring to the South West prestigious loans and exhibitions from national partners. Modern services improve the care of visitors and the collections alike.

A new garden entrance links the Victorian museum to its historic surroundings and the neighbouring gardens. The area is one of only five sites classified by English Heritage as an Area of Archaeological Importance.

Seaton Down Hoard: A first Glimpse

  • 26 July 2016 — 18 June 2017 *on now

Thanks to a number of donations and grants, the Seaton Down Hoard has been purchased for the benefit of the people of Devon and Exeter and for future generations. The purchase and conservation of the hoard of coins has been made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clinton Estates, a private donation by Patrick Long, and many contributions by members of the public. The Seaton Down Hoard is the largest Roman coin hoard ever found in Devon. The coins were discovered in November 2013, and have recently been purchased by RAMM. Around AD348, the coins were buried, probably by a private individual or soldier for safe-keeping. They provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of 4th-century Roman Britain. Work has begun to stabilise the collection of almost 23,000 coins, which will help us unveil the rich story of Roman East Devon and its place in the Economic history of late Roman Britain. Each coin will need to be checked and a selection of coins conserved to reveal precise details of their date, type and place of mint. See a display of the coins, A few of the coins will be on display for visitors to enjoy while conservation work continues on the main collection. You can catch an early glimpse of a small part of the hoard from Tuesday 26 July. A new display will be created for the entire hoard in 2017.

Sea Life: Glimpses of the Wonderful

  • 13 May — 17 September 2017 *on now

Catch a glimpse of the magic and mystery of the world under the sea. Dive in, and delight in the wonders of aquatic life. Through a playful mix of historic objects, film, illustrations, live creatures and contemporary craft, the exhibition combines science and art to inspire a greater appreciation of Devon’s glorious coastline for visitors of all ages. Glimpses of the Wonderful embraces the study of the seashore from the early Victorian period, a fascination popularised by pioneer marine biologist Philip Henry Gosse who investigated and created illustrations of Devon’s coastal life. The exhibition explores how scientists and artists have observed aquatic organisms and shared their knowledge. It features exquisite Victorian scientific models made in wax by the Ziegler Studio and glass by the Blaschkas as well as lecture illustrations made from paper collages and even real animals. The invention of the aquarium by Gosse and others played an important role in bringing the seashore to the public. Investigate British rockpool creatures up close in RAMM’s aquarium, learn about how to take care of Devon’s fragile coast and be inspired to explore the shore for yourself. Be the first to see a new work by internationally-renowned glass artist Steffen Dam. His ‘marine life jars’ are a beautiful illusion of reality containing imaginary blown-glass creatures. Dam took inspiration from RAMM’s Percy Sladen collection of starfish and sea urchins to create new forms from his own biological universe. This commission has been supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Art Fund and the Friends of RAMM. This exhibition is inspired by RAMM’s collection of rare drawings by PH Gosse. It also draws on the collections of National Museums Wales, Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery, V&A, Tameside Museums and Galleries and others.

Nahem Shoa, The Wild Abyss 2017

Into the Wild Abyss

  • 9 June — 3 September 2017

This exhibition brings together contemporary artists Gordon Cheung, Rui Matsunaga and Nahem Shoa to explore nature and spirituality in this era of accelerated technological change. The artists share a desire to express hope through hallucinatory, shimmering and imagined forms reflecting on the human condition. Into The Wild Abyss takes its title from John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost (1667). The poem tells the story of the fall of rebel angels, the temptation of Adam and Eve and their consequent expulsion from paradise. Paradise Lost can be read as a metaphor for how we have entered the 21st century, with a series of international crises, ecological concerns and political instability. The artists reflect on these and invite visitors Into The Wild Abyss. The artists have also been inspired by RAMM’s collection. They have selected some natural history specimens to complement their artwork. Into the Wild Abyss continues RAMM’s mission to unlock the potential of museum collections by partnering with contemporary artists.

Roman Roadshow: Heath Week

  • 23 July 2017 10am-4pm

Woodbury Castle, Woodbury Common
The RAMM Roman Roadshow travels to Woodbury Common to take part in Heath Week. This event celebrates the archaeology and natural history of East Devon's heathland and gives you the chance to see the Seaton Down Hoard up close. There will be family-friendly activities including coin conservation, making a Roman coin, and Roman games.
About the Seaton Down Hoard
The Seaton Down Hoard was discovered in November 2013, and has recently been purchased by RAMM. Around AD348, the coins were buried, probably by a private individual or soldier for safe-keeping. They provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of 4th-century Roman Britain. Thanks to a number of donations and grants, the Seaton Down Hoard has been purchased for the benefit of the people of Devon and Exeter and for future generations.
Work has begun to stabilise the coins. Each coin will be checked and a selection of coins conserved to reveal precise details of their date, type and place of mint. A new display will be created for the entire hoard in 2017.
The purchase and conservation of the hoard of coins was made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clinton Estates, a private donation by Patrick Long, and many contributions by members of the public.
