Treasures in Store

We can’t wait to welcome visitors again when the museum reopens on Friday 10 July. 

To celebrate, we will be launching our 2020 special exhibition: Treasures in Store.

Treasures in Store puts the spotlight on objects from our collection which have rarely been on display. It’s their time to shine.  We’ll explore their stories, discover the ways our collection has grown over time, and meet the passionate collectors from the past.

We’ll be highlighting the challenges of conserving fragile historic pieces and wonder what, in our digital, throwaway age, might be the prize museum piece of the future.
