A New Year beckons...

2016 sees two new exhibitions at the Museum which we hope will be of interest to both our casual and regular visitors.

Running throughout January and February is Thoresby, the End of the Mine. Chris Uptonís evocative photographs record the last days of a landmark local pit, in an exhibition which stays true to our long-standing aim of reflecting the Museumís local community.

January also marks the opening of our ambitious attempt to convey something of the range of the Museumís diverse holdings in a single exhibition. Mansfield Museum in Objects sets out to capture the changing face of the Museum by means of carefully selected items, from oil paintings to penny farthings. This is our first-ever twelve month temporary exhibition and comes in response to the regular enquiries we receive as to the whereabouts of this or that favourite object - sometimes recalled from forty years ago, or more. And if you canít find your particular favourite, simply let us know and weíll do our best to add it to the displays.

Whether to explore these two new attractions or to re-visit old favourites, youíre always welcome at Mansfield Museum.
