Hillary Display in our Library
Come and see special objects from our Hillary collection on show in our Library. The items include our newly acquired letters written by Hillary, and two objects never seen before at the Museum, that belonged to Sir Ed at various stages throughout his life. These provide an intimate glimpse of Ed the mountaineer, humanitarian, bee keeper, family man and friend.
This display will be on display in our Library, from Saturday 20th July until Friday 9th August, 10am - 3pm (excluding Sundays).
