On the 1st Tuesday of every month we hold a Donation Day where members of the public can come along with mining related items or books that they want to donate to the Museum.
Drawing from a largely unseen collection, ‘Say it Loud’ is a new exhibition which investigates the techniques and devices used by poster designers.
Join us every Wednesday in term time with your under 5s from 10:15am - 11:00am for singing, story telling and craft activities.
We have the perfect venue for this event. Whether you would like to turn some of your spare horsey items into extra cash, or maybe you just want to come to browse, everyone welcome. Free admission.
