ABOUT THE MUSEUM

The Museum of Beyond is the creation of Suffolk artist Fran Crowe. By imagining how a future society might see our 21st century waste (especially plastics in the ocean), she hopes to encourage a re-think about the way we use live now - especially our use of plastics. In addition, Fran hopes that the Museum will offer glimpses of a future beyond oil that might offer better and more fulfilling ways of living.

The Museum is highly participative and actively welcomes new contributions to its collections. Already, many items have been added by visitors to the Museum and interpretation 'created' for previously unidentified artefacts.

The Museum aims to create an entertaining and thought-provoking hub about plastics in our everyday lives and in our seas... and the way we live now.

Ideas for collaborations are always warmly invited and Fran hopes in the future to be able to offer a pop-up version of the museum so that anyone can set up a Museum of Beyond near the coast where they live. If this idea interests you, or you know of good locations where the Museum could be temporarily be exhibited, do get in touch with Fran at the Museum. (Some photos of previous exhibitions are shown below.)

Moreover, the Museum now also has its very own roaming gallery - a rescued vintage horsebox - which has already enjoyed some fabulous days out! Again, ideas for potential temporary venues are warmly welcomed...
