Heritage Open Days
Thornbury & District Museum
Saturday 8 & 15 September 10am – 4pm and Sunday 9 & 16 September 2pm – 4.30pm
On Saturday 8th and 15th, find out how a small museum works – a behind the scenes tour of the Museum illustrating the journey of a donated item from its arrival at the Museum to its eventual storage or exhibition place.
On Sundays 9th and 16th take part in a Heritage Trail walk. On Sunday 9th enjoy part 1 which will start at the Museum and journey around the town centre looking at significant buildings or on Sunday 16th join part 2 which will start at the Museum, venturing out to the edge of the town and across fields, returning to the town centre.
Access Information: Access within the Museum is limited for wheelchairs and there is a steep staircase. Heritage Trail walks (Sundays 9th & 16th) are both long so are not suitable for very small children. The walk on Sunday 9th is manageable for wheelchairs. The second walk (Sunday 16th) goes across fields and is unsuitable for wheelchairs.
Booking information: No booking required for the behind the scenes tours of the Museum. Places on the two Heritage Trail walks are limited to 25 each and must be booked in advance by telephone, email or in person: call 01454 857774, email below, or visit during Museum opening times on Tuesday to Friday 1pm–4pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.
