Through The Eyes of a Child

21 July - 2 September

'Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional'  by Walt Disney

An exciting, interactive new touring exhibition from Staffordshire Museum Service.

From work and play to school and times of need, explore the lives of children past and present through the museum objects that tell their stories.

Take part in our craft activities, find items hidden around the museum, and join in the summer fun at The Brampton Museum.

Back in Time with Textiles

15 September – 13 November

Take a look at Newcastle of the past through our fashion and textiles collection.

Take a glimpse at some of the fabulous items usually tucked away in our stores.

Many have never been on display before.


Just by looking at fabric items from our museum we can show you over 200 years of history.

They can tell us about local textiles industries, shops and fashion.

And as the world around us has changed they tell us stories about their owners.


Highlights include a local photographer’s backdrop, a homemade mining strike banner and fashion from the early 1800s to the 1980s.
