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.


This month our new special exhibition: 'The Art of Publicity' oopened here at STEAM, and to mark the occasion January's Object of the Month is this stunning Guernsey and Jersey poster.
In this month's blog, discover how the GWR encouraged people to travel to tourist destinations along the Great Western Network, and find out more about the steamship service introduced by the GWR in 1889.
