Exhibition Visits
Relive the fashions of the past with our clothing collection, remember the tastes of the yesterday with our food packaging and see if you can spot something familiar amongst our homeware and toys. Contact us to arrange a free guided tour of the exhibition with a handling and reminiscence session. All groups will be offered free refreshments. Our building is fully wheelchair accessible and we have two blue badge spaces that can be used by groups visiting in minibuses.
