Object of the Month

Object of the Month

Our Object of the Month series offers an opportunity to explore an object from the museum’s collections or exhibitions in more detail. Every month, a GWR object will be featured on this page, providing an insight in to an interesting  piece from the museum.

STEAM's new special exhibition, The GWR Publicity Machine, launches on Friday 30 March, 2018. To mark the occasion, March's Object of the Month is the stunning GWR ink well, on display in the new special exhibition.

In this month's blog, discover more about the iconic Go Great Western slogan, dreamt up by the GWR's Publicity Department in the 1920's.
