What does 2018 bring?

In 2018 we hope to revamp the entrance and lobby to the centre making it a more attractive and useable welcome for the visitor.

We are also looking at some audio guide equipment for visitors to use to explain some of the key parts of the museum exhibition as they walk around it.

Our website will be revamped in 2018 and we hope to offer more facilities and information for both visitors and Friends of the Museum.

It looks to be an exciting year - please revisit the website to keep track of these developments as they progress - we will keep you informed.

Thank you.
