Summer is coming to the Museum

We are busy working on our Industrial Mansfield Heritage Lottery Fund Project and it won’t be long before work starts on the installation. It is very exciting choosing objects, selecting photographs and developing the new interactive exhibits that will tell the story of industry in Mansfield.

This year’s Summer Exhibition at Mansfield Museum has a ‘getting away from it all’ theme just right for this time of year. Trains and Boats and Planes is all about 20C transport, on land, on sea and by air. As well as looking at the main developments in travel, the exhibition will contain the 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 – there is always something new to see.
