Museum Lates: History Mystery Part 2 ‘The Museum Years’

Thu 29th Nov 2018 - 18:00 - 21:00

Museum Lates

Meet the eccentric and colourful characters who lived in and looked after the museum and its objects from its opening in 1858 to the present day.

Whose wallpaper finished him off? Who brought back hundreds of objects from his world travels? Who cleared the rubble from the bombed museum gatehouse?

Take the opportunity to ascend the 43 steps to the Observatory, if you’re feeling energetic (don’t worry if not – we have pictures!).

Enjoy a glass of Sherry Cobbler, made famous by Charles Dickins.

Over 18s only.

Tours at 6.30pm and 7.30pm
