Experience Barnsley Museum and Discovery Centre is dedicated to the history and people of the borough. It is an inspiring place for all the family to visit. There is lots of fun to be had in the interactive galleries and the Discovery Centre holds priceless treasures.
Hands on activities and educational interactive games are found all around the museum, including in the Making History Gallery, which includes archaeological dig, historical costume and family tree puzzles. For children who like a challenge, we also have our new Museum Activity Trail, which is free.
With a walk in cinema and regular activities for all ages there’s plenty to get involved with. We have a regular programme of family activities, after-school clubs, talks and lectures – something for all ages. Special activities take place during the school holidays.
