Youngsters enjoying hands on history

Join us at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery on Saturday, 21 October, for a guessing game at our Hands on History event: Mystery Items: What am I?

Come along and see if you can work out what the selected mystery objects from our collection are and how they were used.

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. Drop in anytime between 11am and 4pm in the Yellow 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 check out the lively programme of temporary exhibitions?

Becca Pullen's paintings exhibition, 'A mild disturbance – my tiny riot!', reflects her personal thoughts and ideas, her joys and anger at situations, past and the now.

Corley and Fillongley Photographic Club have their first exhibition at the Museum which showcases the amazing talents of local amateur photographers.

There’s also a final chance to explore our In Sickness and in Health exhibition where you can follow ‘Rat’ around to discover how health issues changed through different periods of history.
