Craven Museum

Craven Museum will be conducting outreach and events throughout redevelopment as part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project Stories & Treasures of Street & Dale.

A selection of exhibits from the Craven Museum collections.

Craven Museum is closed from 3rd September 2018 in order for our Heritage Lottery Funded refurbishment to take place.

Craven Museum on the road!

While Craven Museum is closed for redevelopment, the Museum team are going out on the Road!

Come along to Embsay Library on February 8, 2019, from 2pm-5pm for an afternoon of hands on history! 

There will be lots of activities taking place, including displays of local archives, information about Craven Museum’s redevelopment and how you can get involved, object handling sessions, craft activities for kids and delicious refreshments available to purchase from the Fairtrade Café. All activities are free to attend.

Please bring your own objects along to the event too. Whether it’s a fossil found at a beach, an heirloom handed down through the generations, photos, letters, maps or pieces of pottery, Craven Museum would love to see these treasures, and hear their stories. Your object could be featured in an online digital Museum of people’s objects to celebrate the rich heritage of Craven.

So join Craven Museum and Embsay Library at Embsay Library and Village Hall on February 8, 2019, for a special Roadshow event, and explore objects from the Museum collection, including a 100-year-old Teddy Bear.
