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! 


Plastic-free Christmas


Bell Pettigrew Museum

Sunday 2nd September, 2pm-3:30pm


Did you know that plastic takes over 400 years to degrade? In the meantime, it pollutes our oceans with devastating consequences. At Christmas, plasticised wrapping paper is thrown in landfill. We’ll be decorating our own recyclable wrapping paper and learning the art of furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) amongst the ocean life of the Bell Pettigrew Museum. Free, but booking required.
