The Museum galleries and garden are now closed until early 2016 for work on our exciting Heritage Lottery funded redevelopment project, Our Country Lives.
Although we are not holding our usual special events this year, some of our regular events will continue. We are also running some events and activities related to the redevelopment, and others inspired by the MERL archives and library, and the University's Special Collections, which will remain open throughout the redevelopment.
- Family events
Toddler Time and the Wartime Christmas party
- Rural Reads plus... book club
Now taking inspiration from the University's Special Collections
- Performing the Past workshops
Special workshops on live interpretation in association with Historic Royal Palaces and Past Pleasures
- Our Country Lives events programme
Details of events relating to the redevelopment can be found on the Our Country Lives blog.
- Focus on the Special Collections
Seminars, displays and other events, inspired by the University's Special Collections.
