Sunday 21st January 2018 – FenArch Day 11am – 1pm (Free event)

‘Join local archaeologists and enthusiasts as they populate Wisbech and Fenland Museum for a programme of family friendly activities, talks, object handling and an opportunity to meet the experts and find out more archaeological finds and identification!’

Sunday 28th January 2018 – Conservation Live (ii) 11am – 1pm (Free event)

‘A final opportunity for visitors to see behind the scenes. Come and find out about conservation cleaning and watch precious books from our library be conserved. The lead conservator will explain how and why books are conserved. A must if you always wondered what happens behind the scenes at the museum…’

Wisbech & Fenland Museum is one of the oldest museums in the United Kingdom.

The collections were initiated by the town's Literary and Museum Societies which were formed in 1781 and 1835 respectively. Since the Museum opened in 1847, the collections have continued to grow, but the essence of the Museum remains virtually unchanged. So come and discover a treasure house of rare and unusual artefacts, illuminating history, both local and worldwide, recent and ancient.
