Our collection of videos feature some of the diverse stories that we've uncovered from Exeter's multicultural past. This collection includes stories that bring new perspectives to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum's Collections, Exeter during World War II, the local Jewish Community, and the city in the Victorian Era. 


This video gives a general introduction to the project, with footage from the story-telling event at the Royal Allbert  Memorial Museum.
