Arcade game console displays unseen museum items

Inside OutHerefordshire Council

A 1980s arcade game console is being used to display a museum’s artefacts by depicting them as digital art.

Hereford Museum and Art Gallery worked with local artists to choose artefacts for the display such as a 19th Century Victorian wooden Noah’s ark.

The artefacts are in storage at Hereford’s Resource and Learning Centre as they are too delicate to move.

The exhibit, part of the Inside Out project, will remain at Leominster library until the end of the year.

In the new year the arcade game display will be taken to other libraries in the county, Herefordshire Council has said.

Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, on Broad Street, is currently closed for redevelopment until 2025, with its items and the building’s library moving to temporary homes.
