Experience Barnsley Museum

The new Experience Barnsley Museum provides a unique insight into life in Barnsley from Roman occupation to the present day. The majority of the artefacts and exhibits in the musuem were donated by local people, lending a personal touch to the displays.

The museum is hands on and encourages interactivity with it's visitors of all ages. The Learning Lab offers a range of activities to be involved in especially on weekends and during school holidays. A walk in cinema provides an audio visual display, and temporary exhibits ensure there is always something new to see.
