A-Z of Experience Barnsley Collections

We thought we’d treat you to a very small taster of what you can see once we’re able to re-open Experience Barnsley. Almost everything on display has been donated by the people of Barnsley. In 2020 we have been working on the biggest updates to the gallery since the museum opened in 2013.
