Exhibitions Telling Stories

The Exhibitions draw your attention to the range of items in the collection. An item that tells a unique story – whether an object, photograph or document – becomes a treasure to be saved for the understanding of history it holds for future generations.

Throughout our changing exhibitions the stories bring history to life. Our program of Community Talks and Tuesday Treasures explore an exhibition subject or a collection at greater depth for the enjoyment and appreciation of members and the public.
