The Donald McGill Postcard Museum
The Donald McGill postcard Museum is a wonderfully quirky place. Filled with fascinating images spanning over 60 years. Known for their saucey quotes and self depreciating English humour. This museum is a must for the whole family.
The museum is the fruition of 4 years hard work by James who acquired the collection and has designed the interior to visualise the highs and lows of the Donald McGill postcards, which were banned from sale during the 1950s.
Running from Saturday 11th December The Donald McGill Postcard Museum is holding a Christmas Event every day until Christmas Eve in addition to the usual museum exhibits. The Museum will be in Festive mode and will be displaying over 150 Christmas and New Year cards designed by Mr McGill from the early 1900s through to the 1960s.
The Orrery Cafe will also be open to serve a full range of speciality teas and coffees, cakes, scones, and mince pies.
The museum is donating 50% of all entry fees to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
Ancient Britons £3.00.
Children 5ys-16yrs £1.50.
Small Children Under 5 years 1 Penny.
All children must be accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian.
I Love Ryde believe that there are no offensive cards displayed which would pervert a minor as the small percentage of Double Entendre's that Donald made, depict no offensive imagery or text.
