Summer is fast approaching

We are getting ready for a fun-filled summer here at Mansfield Museum

Our summer exhibition this year is ‘Man on the Moon - A 50th Anniversary Celebration’

In July 1969 Neil Armstrong took mankind’s first steps on the Moon and uttered his now iconic line: ‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ This is an even more amazing achievement when you realise that in the fifty years since, just 12 people have walked on the Moon (and none since 1972). Fifty years on the Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society is working alongside us at the Museum to celebrate this anniversary.

As always there will be lots for children to do and a programme of hands-on science activity workshops to engage the next generation with the furthest reaches of the universe. There will be an activity on every day of the school holidays.

The exhibition opens on Saturday 20 July so come along over the summer to find out about all things space related.

'100 Years of Mansfield' produced by The Old Mansfield Society displays 100 years of archived Mansfield material including images, videos and objects. It has now been extended until 12 October due to the huge amount of interest in the Town’s history. Come down and see it before it goes.

So, as always there is something for everyone so why not pop in and see what we have to offer?
