Our Hands on History events represent a unique opportunity to handle some of the wonderful artefacts from the Museum’s collections. The sessions are free and there is no need to book - just drop in between 11 am and 4 pm in the Picture Gallery. Come, see, hold, and be inspired by our travel items on Saturday 21st May.
