It’s Halloween! For this Family Friday, we will look at some of the creepy crawlies and beasties in our collection. Learn all about them whilst making your very own crafted piece to take home.
Join Bernie Rutter for an hour and a half workshop at the Museum & Art Gallery. Our exhibition Defining a Line: New Sculpture by Denis O’ Connor will provide the creative inspiration for this hands on drawing and sculpture workshop
Every other Tuesday, there will be the opportunity to get up close and handle authentic objects from the museum collection. Learn the history of these fascinating objects whilst being able to study them closely for yourself.

We’re developing a beautiful new nature display at the Museum & Art Gallery. Things in the space will change day by day, as we empty cases and pack the objects to keep them safe and sound before they move into their new home. Sometimes you’ll be able to take a peek and see us packing up the specimens. Other times we may need to close the gallery to keep you safe. Please call 01332 641904, ahead of your visit, to find out our plans for the space that day. Thank you for your cooperation.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
