logo-heritage-open-daysMarton Museum will once again be participating in the Heritage Open Days event which falls this year on the weekend of 12th and 13th September. This has been an enormously successful event for us in previous years, attracting a huge number of visitors from across the county and further afield. We will be open on the Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 5.00pm and admission will be free. Refreshments will be served in the Cricket Pavilion. There will also be some vintage tractors on site and interactive exhibits suitable for the whole family. Disabled access is available. The Museum contains a unique and extremely interesting collection of a large number of exhibits dating from the 17th century onwards and covering domestic life, agriculture, crafts and handicrafts all collected locally by one man, George Tims, throughout his lifetime. Following his death the collection was passed into the care of Marton village. The Museum can be found in Louisa Ward Close, Marton CV23 9SA. For more information contact museummartongmail.com

If that weekend is not convenient for you don’t forget that the Museum is currently open every Sunday afternoon from 2.00pm to 4.00pm until the 13th September. Admission is free but donations are welcome. We’d love to see you!
