Bishop’s Stortford Museum
HALF TERM FUN AT THE MUSEUM
We have got a fun packed half term lined up for you with a great new selection of booked craft activities along with a selection of new quizzes, trails. We want you to be safe while you visit us and so have taken steps to ensure that all of our activities are COVID-Secure.
You will notice that we have been making some changes to our displays on the first floor over the last few months. This is part of a 2 year programme of improvements that we are bringing in to make your visit an even more interesting and enjoyable experience. If you have any questions for us, either about our COVID Secure measures, our crafts programme or what our future plans are for the museum just speak to a member of the museum team who will be pleased to help you.
ARCHAEOLOGY AT WHITTINGTON WAY
Last year we hosted a display on the recent excavations carried out by Oxford Archaeology East at Whittington Way. Excavations like this are really transforming our understanding of the early development of Bishop’s Stortford and we are delighted that we were the first local venue to host the display. Although the display has now finished we have created a small virtual version of it so you can still stay up to date with this latest development even if you were unable to visit in person.
The Museum in Your Own Home!
Although we are now open again some of you may still prefer to visit us from the safety of your own home (or phone) using our virtual tour of the 2nd floor museum display. When you are in the tour you can “grab” the background with a left click of your mouse and pull the background to the left, right, up or down to look around. As you do this you will see icons embedded in the image. “Arrow” icons are to help you move from one area to the next, “i” icons display information when you hover your cursor over it. You can toggle between regular and full screen with the square icon at the top left corner of the tour.
