Our programme of regular public events includes exhibitions, displays, weekly lunchtime concerts, talks, performances, workshops and drop-in family activities.

The Museum has a small team of around 20 staff. Roles at the Museum range from curatorial to marketing, learning to development and we are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from all.
