Can you believe its February half term already? If you are deciding how to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained during the week, as always, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum will be alive with activity in the city centre!
For this week’s #FindItInExeter Half Term Special we chatted with Stephanie Cherrett, RAMM’s Public Programmes Officer, to discover just why the Museum is the place to be this February break.
The RAMM is one of the many jewels of Exeter’s cultural history. Its displays showcase the world-class collections and collectors that have helped RAMM to become one of Britain’s finest regional museums.
As well as its diverse and significant collections, RAMM’s lively programme of exhibitions, activities and events ensures it is a destination for a day of inspiring fun in the heart of Exeter!
RAMM’s current FREE exhibition ‘Criminal Ornamentation’, has been curated by celebrated British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE, who has chosen works that will most definitely surprise and dazzle even the wildest of imaginations. This intriguing exhibition includes eye-popping art ranging from film to fashion and ceramics to sculpture. Whether you are 3 or 93, it is an exhibition that will blow away the winter blues with a riot of colour and pattern.
Many of RAMM’s half term activities have been inspired by this exhibition. The museum has something planned for every day of the school break, which means there is no chance for your family to be bored!

RAMM always has many exciting exhibitions and events happening throughout the year for the entire family. So, if you want your children to both have fun and be intrigued and inspired this half term, make sure you head straight to RAMM – it truly is home to a million thoughts!
