The Muriel Barker and Doughty Galleries
These galleries are now open from 10am to 4pm (last entry at 3pm). The Muriel Barker gallery reopens with Up your High Street, an exhibition of photographs featuring local shops from the Victorian era to the 1950s. The exhibition highlights how shopping habits have changed over the last 150 years and the impact this had on our local high streets. The exhibition closes on 23rd August. In the adjoining Doughty Gallery, visitors can enjoy the current exhibition Elegance and Beauty. The display brings together ceramics from across 200 years from the late 1600s to the late 1800s. View these beautiful objects alongside some stunning artworks from the museum collection.
