Travelling forms part of our everyday experience of life. From the earliest times to the present, people around the globe have pondered the best means of transport to get to their destination. Join us at RAMM to explore the ways people have moved through spaces, venturing across centuries and continents – from the grind of the daily commute to once-in-a-lifetime journeys across the globe, human ingenuity has found a way to travel by land, air and water.
This exhibition will explore how transport has developed over the centuries and the people and events which have shaped it, as told through objects in RAMM’s collections.

See unique objects, such as a sled from Captain Scott’s ill-fated 1911-12 expedition to the Antarctic, parachute material made by local firm Heathcoat Fabrics, which played a crucial role in NASA’s 2020 mission to Mars, as well as travelling outfits, artworks, vehicles and transport ephemera.

This summer, discover the impact our transport choices can have on the environment around us and the wider issue of climate change, and consider what the future of transport in Exeter might look like.
