Springtime is coming to the Museum

It seems amazing that we are already well into 2014.

We are busy working on our Industrial Mansfield Heritage Lottery Fund Project and the trial bay held in February produced lots of positive feedback and some good suggestions. The forthcoming Easter break will see us running a trial of the Audio-Visual content for the gallery. So why not pop in and take a look and give us your comments?

Along with institutions the length of the country, we are commemorating the start of the First World War throughout the year. In April the second of our exhibitions this year, Last Post, examines the part played in the War by the Post Office. October’s Clipstone Camp considers the history of one of the biggest British military training camps of the period.

We are all ready for a busy Easter Holiday with a full programme of art and craft activities to keep your children and grandchildren busy. This holiday we are working in partnership with the RSPB to bring you a range of activities based on caring for our environment. Why not pop in and give it a go?

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