Today, more than 80 years on, we are still an independent museum, an accredited museum with Arts Council England and a member of the Association of Independent Museums. We welcome many thousands of visitors every year to marvel at the variety and quantity of exhibits; to research their families; study the butterflies and insects or just shelter from the elements for a while.
We have exciting plans for the future to enlarge our building so we can display more of our collection and provide more research and educational facilities. An appeal has been launched to raise £10,000 for funding towards the future plans of the Museum. We hope you enjoy this short video. Our details of where to donate are at the end of the presentation. www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4vjy3nmTog
