Exciting plans to redevelop our museum and archive into a First-Class Accessible Heritage Centre
Our exciting major redevelopment will be the first since the Museum moved into its current premises over 10 years ago!
Our objective is to overhaul our Community Archive building to create a first-class Accessible Heritage Centre which will enable us to build a purpose built archival store, more space for exhibitions and our ever growing collection, and room to fully engage with the community such as our Young Archaeologist Club. The project will secure our future, ensuring the Museum continues to be an important local asset for years to come.
