This small museum features various aspects of heritage, social history, and culture.

The site at Apollo Business Village is the flagship location for the museum, although there are permanent exhibition spaces at other sites, and frequent touring exhibitions.

Open Doors at PAST LIVES Museum will, by popular demand, be offering a reprise of the wartime exhibitions featuring a selection of WWI and WWII displays and artefacts.

The museum will be open between 16 and 30 September, which will coincide with the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII. There will be a couple of afternoon and evening lectures to complement and enhance the exhibition theme.

Please see Facebook page for exact dates and times of both the exhibition open hours and the lectures -
