Hands on History

Come along to Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery’s latest Hands on History event to explore objects on the theme of love and devotion.

The theme for this month’s Hands on History session at the Museum is Dear Love.

We will be exploring objects from our collection on the theme of love and devotion. Drop in anytime between 11am and 3:30pm on Saturday, 18 February in the Picture Gallery. 

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.

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 again a smaller version of our 2020 Nuneaton Blitz exhibition which gives a vivid picture of the bombing in Nuneaton during the Second World War.

Hexachrome Sprawl by Mark Scammell features a series of cross-stich works as well as gouache paintings and back-stitched works.

Do not forget our Take 5 exhibition is now open with many different artworks and crafts available to purchase.
