Costume Gallery to be refurbished!

Look Again Project

All change in the Costume Gallery

The Costume Gallery will be closed to the public from Wednesday 29 January so that work can begin on the next exciting phase of the Look Again Costume Project. For the last 18 months, students and heritage volunteers from the Arts Society have been working together to re-examine the museum's costume collection and plan new ways for this to be displayed.

While the Costume Gallery is closed, the Small Exhibition Gallery on the First Floor will be used as a studio space. As and when work is being carried out, visitors will be able to see items being catalogued and packed, conservation work and gain an insight into the mounting process.
