Museum Library Open Day!
One of our many open days to view the Museums’ stunning library. Works of History, Biography, Medicine, Travel and Exploration. And view the original manuscript of Great Expectations.
Dinosaurs! in partnership with the Sedgwick Museum in Cambridge.
There will be a really exciting community art event - visitors can decorate a bone to build ‘Ichthyo’ or ‘Ichy’ the ichthyosaur/ichthyosaurus, which will eventually hang in the main gallery!
Additionally, as part of Summer at the museums (UCM festival) there will be artist-led dinosaur themed family-friendly workshops.
The Big Dig!
Budding archaeologists are set to uncover more of Wisbech’s history during May half term as a ‘Time Team’ style community dig gets underway.
Spectators are welcome to attend and see the work in progress. There will be a chance to view the ‘finds’ as they come out of the ground and displays about the history of the site.
There will also be children’s activities and an opportunity to explore the museum - which is one of the oldest purpose-built museums in the UK.
An exhibition displaying the finds and results of The Big Dig will be held at The Gap at 24 High Street, Wisbech, and at the museum next year.
