The Museum is close to completing its major redevelopment and reopening to the public! The historic cobbles are being reinstated, the new displays are being installed, and the boiler restoration is almost finished.

It is beginning to feel a lot like a museum now as our landscaped entrance is taking shape and our new display cases and audiovisual displays have been installed!
If you have walked past the Museum recently, you can see through the fences that it is still a building site. However, inside, the end is in sight for our boiler restoration, and on the top part of the site, our new exhibitions building has been finished!
Although it might seem from our social media that all we are doing is crowdfunding to complete the restoration of our historic boiler, there is a lot more happening at the Museum.
Construction is proceeding well as buildings have come down and others are going up. Behind the scenes, we are undertaking detailed research for the new displays and we have just launched an important crowdfunding appeal to complete the restoration of our historic boiler.
