The Museum’s collections span from prehistory to present day and consist not only of a large archaeology collection, but also agriculture, costume, paper ephemera and social history.
The Museum is multi award winning with vibrant and extensive displays. The education service has achieved external accreditation from the Sandford Award for Heritage Education and Learning Outside the Classroom. It has been shortlisted and won awards for work with children and young people. Within each gallery there are opportunities for “hands on” exploration and discovery through our computer interactives. All sessions are linked to the national curriculum.
Activities are fun and informative and led by a team of professional staff.
