MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY
Don't miss what’s coming up
Every other Tuesday, there will be the opportunity to get up close and handle authentic objects from our collection. Learn the history of these fascinating objects whilst handling them for yourself.
We are delighted to introduce a new feature to our summer programme! The Artist Hour is a free artist-led workshop where we will explore the themes and materials used in that week’s Art Hub in more depth.
The Art Hub will pop up each Wednesday over the summer holiday, transforming a different space of the museum each week in to an artist studio where you are free to explore, create and imagine using a variety of artist’s materials.
Join Andrea Hadley-Johnson, Co-Production Manager, in Inspired by Nature, for an introduction to some beautiful decorative objects from our collection that have been inspired by the natural world.
