Museums Week

Spring, 1998

MUSEUMS Week 1998 is to be held from the 16th to the 24th May and one of the themes will be ‘Museums in the Community’ to mark the United Kingdom’s Presidency of the European Union.

The Museum will contribute to the week with its now customary competition, which this year will be based on the geography of European instrument making. Contestants will be asked to find certain instruments among the displays and mark their places of origin on a less than helpful map of Europe. Valuable prizes will, as always, be presented to the lucky winners.
