Our exciting new exhibition space will host touring exhibitions and visiting treasures.
The making of The Story Museum
Until August 2020
How do you make a Story Museum? Find out more about our buildings, their history and how our creative teams realised the vision to create this most unusual museum.
See some of the objects dug up in our courtyard during the construction, marvel at the before and after pictures and find out more about some of the challenges we faced in filling our building with 1001 great stories.
This exhibition has been created in partnership with Purcell UK.
Coming Autumn 2020
What makes something a treasure? Our exhibition, ‘Precious’, invites you to consider which objects you cherish and why.
We asked well-known people from different walks of life to choose what they would rescue first if their home caught fire. And then to tell us why this object is so very important to them. These items are not necessarily rare or fragile or valuable. But they are extremely precious to their owners. Your challenge is to guess their owners and uncover their stories.
