Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library


There are exciting changes coming to the Harris!

We are thrilled to have received £4.5 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of a £10.2 million large project to refurbish the Harris, making improvements to the building, displays and the way we work.  This means that we are going to be closed for a while as the work is carried out.

However, when we re-open we will have a new space for schools and groups which will be bigger and brighter, inspiring learning through objects and activities.   We’ll be working on new school sessions and refreshing old favourites for when we can welcome you back.

In the meantime keep an eye out for news of school sessions once we have settled in to our temporary home at the Museum of Lancashire.
