Museum and Art Gallery
Alongside our temporary exhibition programme, the museum has dedicated spaces housing its permanent displays.
George Eliot and The Writing Room
We have a gallery dedicated to local author George Eliot, as well as The Writing Room where you can tell Belle the dog your own story and try our George Eliot Board Game.
The Local History Exhibition highlights artefacts linked to the borough’s coal mining industry, as well as items relating to the First and Second World War. Larry Grayson, Nuneaton’s favourite son, is also celebrated in the Local History area, as well as the opportunity to view objects relating to shopping of the area. QR codes link to films and other resources to enrich your visit.
The Picture Gallery is situated on the first floor of the museum building. This space focuses on showing some of the Museum’s art collection. Amongst the display are exciting works, such as Savery’s “Before the Deluge” and Prinsep Beadle’s “Battle of Vitoria”. There’s plenty for the kids in this room too, as musical instruments and a puppet theatre await for youngsters to enjoy.
