The museum is now closed for redevelopment. We are currently in the building phase of our project.

Brampton Is Growing (BiG) – Transforming learning and visitor experiences at the Museum

This project will enable Brampton Museum & Gallery to welcome more diverse audiences and offer more meaningful and enjoyable visits with a range of improvements including

New learning and exhibitions space

More of our collection on display – new objects, telling new stories in new ways

New 3 year activity programme for everyone

Better care of the collections for future generations to enjoy

New volunteer and public research space

Working with our local community to create better museum displays

Expanded volunteer opportunities to help us share Newcastle’s stories.

New opportunities for income generation via retail sales & community hire

Temporary exhibitions gallery reflecting the vibrant local history, arts & culture of the area.

We will post regular updates on our project here and on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. 

This exciting project would not be possible without the support of the following organisations- Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, RED Industries Landfill Communities Trust, Appetite and the Friends of the Museum. It would also not be possible without the donations we have received over the years from our visitors. Every penny has contributed to this project. Thank you!
