Autumn is almost upon us

The new floor in the arcade has now been completed ready for the installation of the eagerly awaited Made in Mansfield Gallery. This will take shape during September ready for the official opening on 23 October, ready for the October half term holiday.

While this work is underway there is still time to catch this year’s Summer Exhibition with its ‘getting away from it all’ theme of Trains and Boats and Planes. All about 20C transport, on land, on sea and by air it looks at the main developments in travel and contains lots of activities for children which are a trademark of the Museum’s summer displays.

Along with institutions the length of the country, we are commemorating the start of the First World War throughout the year. In October our Clipstone Camp exhibition considers the history of one of the biggest British military training camps of the period.

We hope that you will find something in our wide ranging programme that will entice you into the Museum throughout the Autumn – there is always something new to see.
