Exhibitions

There are a number of exhibition spaces and feature display areas throughout the Museum and Archives building. The artefacts and works on display change regularly and details of our current shows are listed here.

The main exhibition space is Da Gadderie. Shows on display here can be by individual artists, or curated by the Museum's own Exhibitions Officer based on Museum and Archive artefacts, or including touring exhibitions from other musuems, galleries or institutions. Details of some of the previous high profile shows are included on the Our Own Shows Archive page.

Any artist who would like to display work in the building should contact the Exhibitions Officer to discuss.
