Hands on history

This month’s theme is ‘A Welcome Light’.

January is a time of resolutions, self-care and home comforts to help see us through the winter months and into spring. In this session, we invite you to come and explore objects on this theme as we cosy up and welcome the return of the light.

Our ‘Hands on History’ events represent a unique opportunity to handle some of the wonderful artefacts from the Museum’s collections. It is free to take part and there is no need to book. Drop in anytime between 11am and 3:30pm in the Picture Gallery.

Cllr Sue Markham, Portfolio Holder for Public Services, said:

“The Museum’s handling sessions enable visitors to feel the excitement of real history in their hands.” 

While at the Museum, why not also check out our temporary exhibitions? There is still the chance to view our ‘Nuneaton Blitz’ exhibition which gives a vivid picture of the bombing in Nuneaton during the Second World War.

Do not forget our most recent exhibition, ‘Hexachrome Sprawl’ by Mark Scammell, which features a series of cross-stich works as well as gouache paintings and back-stitched works. These are all brought to life using the six colours of the Hexachrome colour scheme.

On Saturday, 21 January, ‘TAKE 5 Craft Show’ is back with many different artworks and crafts on show and available to purchase.
