We are improving our museum including creating new permanent displays in this gallery. Look out for opening information.


We currently showcasing a temporary exhibition It’s A Bug’s Life in this gallery. Minibeasts, creepy crawlies- whatever you call them the small creatures that share our gardens and live in our fields are important. It’s A Bug’s Life is a family friendly exhibition that takes a look at their world. Find out how beetles see and hear, how they defend themselves, and  how to make a beetle home in your garden or find how a butterfly changes from a caterpillar, what the difference is between a butterfly and a moth and what is mudpuddling.
