Mary Anning Maquette goes on Tour!


Image

In May 2022, a statue of Mary Anning was unveiled in her home town, Lyme Regis after a successful crowd funding campaign - Mary Anning Rocks . This achievement gives visitors to Lyme Regis a physical reminder of a remarkable woman, a fossil hunting pioneer who lived and worked here.

Mary's artist's maquette has now gone on tour round the country and can be seen at the museums listed below.  And if you know a museum near you that would like to host Mary's maquette, please get in touch with the Mary Anning Rocks campaign here: hello@maryanningrocks.co.uk
