Collectors Corner

To tie in with our year-long exhibition, ‘Mansfield Museum in 389¼ Objects’, we are giving Mansfield’s collectors the chance to join in the spirit and put their own treasures on show alongside ours. Beginning in April we will provide, free, a dedicated display unit in a very prominent position at the Museum to accommodate, one per month, the first ten collections we are offered on loan. These can be as mainstream or as quirky as you like: our aim is to display as wide a variety of objects as possible over the next year. So whether it’s model cars or cuff-links, cutlery or comics, get in touch and let us bring your pride and joy to the attention of hundreds of visitors.

Married in Mansfield

Here at the Museum we like to involve our local community in just about everything we do. Inspired by ‘Mansfield Museum in 389¼’ Objects, our year-long exhibition displaying the wide reach of our collections old and new, we are planning a special feature which once again needs your contributions.
We’re calling it ‘Married in Mansfield’ and participation is open to any couples, old or young, who were - well, married in Mansfield! Our aim is to put together a photo album full of your wedding day pictures. This will be put on display for the rest of the year alongside the beautiful 60’s bridal gown kindly donated to us by Mr Rodgers.

If you would like to be part of this celebration of the Big Day contact Mansfield Museum 01623 463088
