With longstanding and temporary exhibits, the Museum and Art Gallery boasts paintings and artefacts that are of both local and international significance. Visit the exquisite collection of Joseph Wright paintings. March through the Soldier’s Story exhibition to see the range of weaponry and objects, both military and personal. Pop on your adventure hat and explore historic artefacts from thousands of years ago, within the Archaeology Gallery.
The collections are regularly updated, so there will always be something new – no two visits will ever be the same! Once you’ve satisfied your inner explorer, relax and unwind in The Coffee House with locally sourced cake and coffee, surrounded by a collection of historical porcelain. There is also a newly refurbished shop of unique souvenirs and art materials to browse at your own leisure. Start planning your visit now!
