Discover Mansfield Museum

The five galleries of Mansfield Museum contain a fascinating mix of contemporary and modern displays, from the exquisite Buxton watercolours and Pinxton porcelain to the hands-on XplorActive environment gallery.

Images of Mansfield introduces the visitor to the social history of the area and a rolling programme of national and local temporary exhibitions ensures there is always something new to see.

XplorActive
The most interactive of our permanent galleries focuses on helping children (and their parents) understand the crucial part they play in sustaining their environment. Hands-on activities encourage them to trace, weigh, find, draw, peep and twist their way through a journey from the kitchen to the edge of the wood, via the street, the park and the river.

Escapes
One of the Museum’s most popular features is its constantly changing catalogue of short-term displays. Two galleries host displays of the work of local artists alongside stimulating and sometimes provocative travelling exhibitions featuring nationally known artists.

Learning Journeys
The Museum encourages all aspects of life-long learning via formal schools education visits, more playful Fun Art workshops and Growing Bolder’s menu of art and craft sessions for older people.
