There is a permanent exhibition downstairs with exhibits showing various facets of the life and times of the area, from prehistory and early settlement, the transition to a market town in medieval times, through the development of the blanket industry, the two world wars and the growth of the modern town.

There is also a changing programme of exhibitions by local artists and craftsmen upstairs in the Bartlett-Taylor Gallery.

To give you an idea of the type of exhibits we have created a small gallery of photos in the within the Galleries section.

New galleries will be posted on the blog
As our building is small, it is not possible to display the entire collection. This means many items are kept in store, including fossils, Roman pottery, audio records as well as older and contemporary photographs.

If you have any particular interest or need, please ask and you may find there is something relevent in the archive / exhibit store.

If you wish to see the archives, please phone in advance to make an appointment with the archivist.

The Museum is the custodian important collections of local photographs – the Tom Worley Collection, the Arthur Titherington Collection and The Peter Barker Collection.
