Contribution to the Atlas
The origins of RAMM can be dated to 1813, when the Devon and Exeter Institution opened with the aim of ‘promoting the general diffusion of Science, Literature and Art, and illustrating the Natural and Civic History of the County of Devon and the City of Exeter’. The museum itself was established in the 1860s. Today RAMM cares for wonderful and diverse collections consisting of over one million individual objects from all over the globe. They are divided into the following curatorial departments: antiquities, costume and textiles, decorative art, ethnography, fine art, natural sciences, numismatics and social history. RAMM’s natural sciences collections cover zoology, botany and geology. They contain British and foreign material of high quality and scientific importance. Around 120,000 specimens are at least partly digitised, the real number of specimens is likely in excess of 500,000.
