Objects in Focus

28th January-19th December 2020, Tues-Sat, 10am-5pm. Free entry

Objects in Focus is a community based project, where a chosen group work with the museum curatorial team to deliver a small exhibition focused on a select few objects. The story behind or surrounding the object is revealed, giving deeper meaning to the collections and connecting it with our community. Our 2020 group will be museum volunteers.
