TV Personality Praises Museum After Visit

Wednesday October 23 2013




BARNSLEY'S new museum has got another fan to add to its growing list after a TV personality praised it.

Antiques expert Eric Knowles congratulated the town for creating ‘a living archive’ of its past, after visiting Experience Barnsley.

He was guided through the exhibits and display areas by Terry Sykes, a member of the Barnsley Town Hall-based attraction’s engagement trust.

The star of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow was shown interactive exhibits that encourage visitors to explore the people and places of the borough.

"Experience Barnsley has without question set the benchmark standard for all future regional museums," he said.

"It's skilfully woven into the present day by the inspirational use of modern-day technology."

I took my grandson,its nice,but don't expect too much. It is worth a visit. The audio equipment was not working when I went. Dissapointing,as my grandson wanted to hear the kids nattering in the little mine.
The cafe is nice,clean,lovely food and the staff are a joy. They gave us excellent service. We should not pull it down,and its a lovely,modern thing for Barnsley. It's a start,hopefully of bigger things to come. Well done all concerned,and hope they keep it fresh and in better working order. Joann Fletcher has put in two little stone mummies and they are a thrill, thanks to her for that,I loved them.
