Museum Re-Launch – Doors Open in November 2016.
Exciting News! Our new exhibition and retail area accessible direct from Frederick Street via the brand new Museum entrance is due to open early in November. Revised entrance fees will apply at this time and updated information will be posted to our website and social media channels, including details of when the Museum will be fully open again to the public to visit and enjoy. This is a proud moment in the history of the museum: the climax of a transformation through which we have rediscovered our collections, and breathed new life into our exhibitions. The redevelopment of the museum provides an opportunity to expand the range of events and facilities we offer alongside the new displays. We are also proud to have been honoured in June 2016 with the Queens Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) this prestigious award is the equivalent of an MBE. The presentation of the award and the Museum re-launch are to take place at the same ceremony, details to be announced soon.
