Grounds consultation to end soon

The Museum is planning an ambitious transformation of its outdoor spaces, to create the best possible experience for the many people who visit each year.

A public display of the plans was held in late September, and we invited attendees to submit their comments.

The consultation period for the Museum's ambitious grounds transformation proposals will close on 10 October 2015.

Thank you to the many visitors and local residents that made it along to the public display of the designs, which was held from 24 to 26 September 2015. We hope it proved useful.

We would like to know what you think of the designs, so please take a moment to send us your comments. 

On 10 October we will collate comments, and we aim to provide a project update by the beginning of November.

Comments after this deadline are still welcome, and will be taken into consideration by the design team.

You can find out more about our vision for the grounds transformation by reading the August update on the project


If you would like to comment on the proposals, please email us at (the consultation period has now closed).
