Please be aware that the Museum Gallery in Nottingham Castle is now closed for redevelopment. We will reopen in our new space in March 2016 on the 1st Floor of Nottingham Castle.

In 2014, the Museum was awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant to redevelop the Museum in Nottingham Castle. At the start of November 2015 we began to move objects out of the gallery and back to our archive at Chilwell.  On 2nd December 2015 the Gallery was closed to the public so we can finish moving the gallery.

Our brand new gallery will be open in March 2016!
