The museum is now closed until late Spring 2017.
About The Project
We have begun an exciting project to unite our museum with the Victorian cottage next door. This will allow us to do many things:
We will have a beautiful glass entrance onto the main street to reveal more of the historic hall house and provide a light and welcoming reception area.
There will be a new exhibition space and learning space for talks, craft, group and school visits.
Visitors will have the opportunity to do more research, see more of the collection, attend more events and find out more about our local history.
And of course there will be improved facilities (accessible lavatory and baby changing).
The cost of the project is £1,012m and we are working hard to raise the final amount. Please click here for more information.
