What's On at the Museum 

The museum re-opened on Thursday 23rd July. Special restrictions apply to all visitors, so please follow this link for advance information.

In the meantime, why not try our special Museum Jigsaw Puzzle

The following exhibition, delayed by the pandemic, will be on show (but without the coffee morning!)

Current exhibitions:

The Victorian Kitchen

A display of Victorian cookery utensils and other quaint and curious artefacts

Victorian Lace

A display of exquisite examples of Victorian lace will be found in Room 1.

Cartes de Visite

In the Victorian Room there is new exhibition of cartes de visite photographs kindly lent by Roger Packham and arranged by Ingrid King. These small albumen prints mounted on cards, largely depicting couples or individuals posed in a studio, were exceptionally popular during the early 19th century as they allowed relatives and friends, for the first time, to exchange portraits by post.
