Generous support for our South Georgia Museum Curator

We are delighted to announce that two new donors have moved us closer to fully funding our curator post for the next two years.

Visitors to Grytviken will know that the South Georgia Museum collection provides a fascinating insight into the island’s natural and human history.

This season, visitors to the island will meet the museum’s newly appointed Curator, Jayne Dunn.

One of Jayne’s first tasks will be to consider the interpretation needed for the ground floor of Grytviken’s Main Store and its many original artefacts.

A veritable time capsule from nearly a century ago, the Main Store contains hundreds of implements used by the Grytviken community and offers a glimpse into the everyday life of the people who worked in this remote place.

 

Jayne’s presence is hugely important to our heritage programme and her work is being supported by donations from new supporters Greg and Jan Winchester, and the Headley Trust.

Thank you!
