Time travellers invited to museum for Croydon Recreated

The Museum of Croydon has been transformed into a form of time-travelling Tardis, ready to transport visitors back 100 years or more.

Museum-of-Croydon-1An exhibition, Croydon Recreated, uses three of the museum’s collections to explore what Croydon was like at the beginning of the 20th century.

Using historic paintings, photographs and maps from the period, the exhibition will recreate nine locations around the borough, allowing visitors to visualise the County Borough of Croydon around 100 years ago and consider issues such as how the past was (and is) preserved and interpreted, and the authenticity of different types of historical evidence.

The exhibition will be displayed in the Museum of Croydon Exhibition Gallery at Croydon Clocktower until April next year. The Museum is open , Tuesday to Saturday, 10.30am – 5pm (except public holidays). Entrance to the exhibition is free.
