Your Support Has an Incredible Impact


The Museum has told the extraordinary stories of ordinary people since 1936.  We care for our collection of over 40,000 everyday objects, which evoke the diverse daily lives of those living in this region over the last 300 years. We are open six days a week during term time and seven days a week during the school holidays.

We can’t wait to see you!
