Museum on the Market


In line with the roadmap out of lockdown we will hopefully be reopening our doors on Wed May 19th. However, we are excited to announce that Blackburn Museum will have a pop up stall on Blackburn Market for 3 weeks between April and May 2021. The stall will feature a different theme each day plus a permanent display of Museum objects, shop items and crafts to take away throughout the period.

Object ID days
Have you ever found an interesting object while clearing out your attic or digging in the garden? Do you have an unknown object and would like to find out more?
If so, why not bring your discovery to our pop up ‘Museum on the Market’ stall for our special Object ID days when our Curators will be available to help answer object enquiries
