New exhibitions at Bassetlaw Museum

by | 21 November 2019 | Art, Heritage, Retford

At Bassetlaw Museum in November, you can see two exhibitions.

‘I REMEMBER WHEN…’ EXHIBITION
Thursday 26th September to Saturday 23rd November
Telling stories can enable us to draw links between the past, present and future and bring to life the human presence behind any object. This exhibition is curated by Bassetlaw residents, who worked collaboratively with museum staff towards creating displays showcasing their own objects and revealing heart-touching, surprising and powerful stories. ‘I remember when…’ is the culmination of the Stories and Objects project run by Nottingham Trent University.
