Work has recently started at Barnsley Town Hall to create the first Barnsley Museum and Archives Centre. Experience Barnsley will be a fun and inspiring place to explore for all the family.
You will discover a rich and fascinating past: the good times, difficult and incredible times which Barnsley has experienced over the centuries.
Get close to priceless treasures buried here thousands of years ago. Uncover your own family’s history, read 1000 year-old documents and explore a new film and sound archive in a new Barnsley Archive Centre too.
Experience Barnsley will open in July 2012 and is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
You can become involved and make history! Hundreds of people have come forward to donate objects, stories and get involved already. Call 01226 773950, email firstname.lastname@example.org or see www.facebook.com/experiencebarnsley2012 to find out more.
