Moscow Comes to Leominster!

On May 19th 2015, a party of senior professional staff from the Kremlin Museum in Moscow visited Leominster. They were on a two week educational tour of the UK, visiting a wide variety of heritage organisations.  They also visited Grange Court, where a buffet lunch was provided for them, and after a guided historical walk around the centre of town, came to see the Museum.  It was an honour to host them and fascinating to talk to them; we learnt that the joys and sorrows of museum work are much the same, whether you are paid, or a volunteer, in a large or small museum, and whatever country you live in!
