Just three miles west of Nottingham’s city centre sits Wollaton Hall – a Grade I listed Elizabethan country house, nestled in 500 acres of beautiful parkland. This stunning mansion opened to the public in 1926 and has been home to Nottingham’s Natural History Museum ever since: today, it houses a collection of over 750,000 artefacts, from fossils, minerals, plants and eggs, to invertebrates, vertebrates, molluscs, taxidermy and rare specimens from around the world.
A wide display of cycles, motorcycles and motor cars are available to see. The museum also houses an operational beam engine, which is extremely unique.
BOOK a night at the Nottingham Mercure, minutes away from the Industrial Museum and lots of other interesting places to visit.
Wollaton Hall, Nottingham, will host the main exhibition, with a complementary exhibition at Lakeside Arts, running from 1 July – 29 October 2017.
