Events

We're closing but we're not stopping!

MUSA is now temporarily closed as we prepare to redevelop and extend the museum, an opportunity to bring you fresh new displays and a wider range of temporary exhibitions.  

We might be closing, but we’re certainly not stopping. Over the coming year we’ll be bringing you a range of events and some temporary displays out and about as MUSA comes to you!
