Description

Established in 1893, this historic building has been a pride of the local community and upheld local culture. A leading museum in Lancashire, the building has the largest gallery space and houses rare collections which record the history of the region. The impressive collection expands over 70,000 objects including historical artifacts, fine art paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, contemporary art pieces, textiles, ceramics and more. Doubling up as a contemporary art venue, the museum is host to a number of art exhibitions throughout the year and has art galleries showcasing work of local artists. Besides various amusing artifacts, the 13,500 year old 'Poulton Elk' is a must see! Also, don't miss Mrs French's 2700 scent bottles and the Egyptian Balcony which adorns murals done by John Somerscales between 1909 to 1913.
