The visitor will be treated to a special behind-the-scenes tour to see where the original pot is stored, and they will be photographed with the object as a special souvenir of their visit.
The millionth visitor since RAMM’s reopening in 2011 is expected to walk through the museum’s doors on Friday 26 June when they will be greeted by Cllr Rosie Denham, Exeter City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Economy and Culture. Tony Eccles, the museum’s Curator of Ethnography will give a special insight into some of the museum’s objects from the four corners of the world. The visitor will also meet technology experts from the Met Office’s Informatics Lab who have been working with RAMM to bring the latest 3D technology to scan and print some of the museum’s objects.
Since the museum reopened, it has been placed in the country’s top 20 regional museums and won a number of awards for excellence, education and tourism, including museum of the Year.
Cllr Denham said: “This is cause for celebration! The Museum is a place that we’re really proud of in Exeter. RAMM attracts audiences of all ages to see its fantastic collections and visiting exhibitions. We’re so lucky that we can see the work of national and international artists and have the opportunity to explore the fantastic collections of objects which help us to find out about our past and to learn about our culture and the cultures of places around the world. Welcoming our millionth visitor since the Museum’s redevelopment is a great achievement which shows how popular RAMM is.”
A photograph of the millionth visitor with the Peruvian pot will be displayed in the museum for the next few weeks.
