Special Exhibits


October 2006 saw the launch of two special exhibits. The first is titled 'THE FAMILY THEATRE' , featuring hand-painted sets, scripts, catalogues and memorabilia relating to a family which presented juvenile drama plays at home during the late 1950s-early 1960s.


We are also proud of our new display of figures titled 'THE JOY OF LITTLE PEOPLE'.


Our current exhibit, 'BLERIOT TO CONCORDE' features a fantastic collection of model aircraft, illustrating the history of modern flight.

Launch of "Making History Fun" Campaign

October 2006 saw the launch of the Museum's exciting year-long campaign called 'Making History Fun'. The aim of the campaign is to make history more accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Museum is very busy planning a full programme of events and activities to run throughout the year. There will be musical evenings, performances (to include: 'An Audience with Rudyard Kipling'), special exhibitions, a Quiz night, speakers and a special Smuggler's event.


The programme and details about events appear in the new 'Making History Fun' section of this website, which has gone online to help keep the public informed.
