An award-winning museum

We often call ourselves an ‘Award-winning museum’ and not without reason...

We’ve received lots of awards since we opened in 1992, for everything from our customer service and facilities for people with disabilities, through to our ‘learning by stealth’ educational philosophy and innovative practice.

Here are a few of the most recent additions to our awards cabinet!
