Museum project for Barnsley at last becomes a reality
RARE archaeological finds discovered in Barnsley will soon be coming home to a new £2.6 million museum and archives centre to be created in the Town Hall.
Experience Barnsley is the first museum telling the story of the borough. The project is being made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The museum will feature collections and stories spanning thousands of years to the present day and will be put together over the next two years.
The project has also attracted £62,400 in funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund.
The cash is to pay for research into Barnsley’s archaeological treasures and provide opportunities for people to see the collections and become involved with projects working with them.
The museum is being put together with The University of Sheffield’s Department of Archaeology, with a whole team of researchers working on different areas of the collections.
