New Museum Director
‘That means a bigger museum building’, he confirms, ‘And recognising our strengths – which are in palaeontology of course, but also our link with Mary Anning (it was on the site of her house that the museum was built), and in Lyme’s literary connections.
‘Immediately, I shall be building relationships with other Lyme organisations. For instance the Development Trust and its plan for a Jurassic Coast Studies Centre – the museum and such a development complement each other.’
David Tucker has 20 years’ museum experience, most recently as County Museums Adviser for Dorset, where his involvement was instrumental in acquiring important fossils for Jurassic Coast museums.
