Touch Tours

Tue, 10 May 2022 - Tue, 18 October 2022 11am

Get closer to our collection.

Book your museum ticket with a Touch Tour for a chance to feel history, quite literally, at your fingertips.

During the tour, Museum Curator Lynda Powell introduces you to some precious objects from our collection. They’ve been brought out from behind the glass of our gallery display cases for you to experience in person; enhancing your understanding of our role in looking after them, and adding a little something extra to your museum visit. Lynda will also explain why some of our collection is kept permanently under wraps, revealing the challenges of storage, conservation and display.

Touch Tours happen on alternate Tuesdays starting 10 May and run until Tuesday 18 October. There will be a maximum of six people on the tour. Touch Tours last about 30 minutes.
