Welcome to Mansfield Museum!
Mansfield Museum has had its most successful summer for twelve years.
As the summer holidays draw to a close, we are delighted to be able to confirm that more visitors passed through our doors this August than in any other year since 2007. Topping out at the 7000 mark, these wonderfully gratifying figures represent scores of families every week throughout the month heading up Leeming Street to check out what was on offer. Many were drawn by the regular ArtBeat hands-on craft sessions; some by Lego or board games days; others by Sublime Science workshops where they got to make their very own pot of slime.
Although those sessions have ended with the return to school, Man on the Moon, our exhibition celebrating the half-centenary of the Moon landing, runs until October and was in itself a big draw during the summer. Why not come and see it for yourself, if you haven’t already done so?
Plus, this is the very last call for '100 Years of Mansfield', The Old Mansfield Society’s display of a century’s worth of archived Mansfield material including images, videos and objects. Extended way beyond its original spring closure date due to its popularity, this fascinating exhibition must end on 12th October.
Stop Press: Watch out for news of a great new exhibition celebrating the careers of local sidecar champs the Birchall Brothers.
