Spring is upon us

As the days are getting longer and hopefully warmer why not make your way down to the museum to catch up on what we have to offer?

We are getting prepared for a busy Easter holiday with a full programme of art and craft activities to keep your children and grandchildren busy. This holiday the theme is animals and their homes giving our younger visitors a chance to try their hand at a different activity each day, from making a cosy winter home for a grizzly bear to creating a mini woodland.

If your youngsters havenít already explored our new Made In Mansfield industrial gallery, why not bring them down and give them a chance to don a hard hat and a tool belt full of tape measures, torches, magnifying glasses, dusters and more as they follow one of our intriguing trails?

Exhibition wise we have A Decade of Glamour which explores both everyday and extraordinary garments of the 1950s. Whether itís the dazzling dresses of the Paris couture houses or the ready to wear styles of M&S, there is something to interest any student of clothes culture. This runs until Saturday 23 April.

The Mansfield Society of Artists stunning annual exhibition, showcasing the talents of our local artists, is on until Saturday 11 April and is followed by the welcome return of the fantastical mechanical machines of Derbyshire based artist Johnny Wright. Entitled The Human Machine this runs from Saturday 18 April until Saturday 11 July.

As usual there are lots of reasons to visit us over the next couple of months so why not pop in?
