Religion in Museums

When museums and religion collide

tin tabernacle, anyone?

Leave a comment

East End

This splendid tin tabernacle – once a school chapel – is looking for a good home. It was acquired a good many years ago by the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum at Singleton in Sussex, who have since  re-erected a simpler and more typical example. They would like to offer this, now lying in pieces in storage, to another museum. If you have any suggestions, please get in touch with the Curator, Julian Bell, at

Interior circa 1910
