Welcome to Sleaford Museum...
As lockdown restrictions begin to ease and the town gets busier once more, do take a moment to look at the beautiful floral display in Monument Gardens outside the Museum. It really is stunning.
Museum re-opening after lockdown
Following the recent Government announcement that Museums are able to reopen from July 4th, we can now develop our ideas on how this will work for Sleaford Museum. Detailed planning is underway to reconfigure the Museum space to ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers. We have a brand new exhibition, Sleaford Maltings, waiting 'in the wings' which has to be mounted and displayed, and we are looking forward to our delayed celebrations of our 5th birthday (2nd April)! Keen as we are to reopen as soon as possible, we anticipate that realistically this will not be until late July. Please watch this space!
As seen in the Sleaford Standard, June 10
In a series of articles printed in the Sleaford Standard during the Museum's closure, we have showcased images from the photographic archive. This recent article printed on June 10th focussed on the early history of Westholme House, built in 1849 and situated in what are now the grounds of St George's Academy. The charming photograph taken in front of the attractive balustrade of the house features smart 1920's ladies and their babies, in what is described as a 'baby drive'. Was this a bonny baby competition? We at the Museum are unaware of the meaning of the term, baby drive. If you recognise anyone in the photograph or can throw any light on the occasion, please do contact us by email: email@example.com or by phone 07518 972016.
Sleaford's Museum of local history in its specially designed building is home to artefacts and stories that portray fascinating aspects of the town and area's unique past. Exhibitions in its colourful interior change frequently and visitors are united in their praise. Admission is free but your donations are welcomed and appreciated to help us to cover essential costs and to fund new exhibitions. The Museum is a completely volunteer run organisation and a registered charity.
