The Museum galleries and garden are now closed until Summer 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.
