Over the last 12-18 months Millom Discovery Centre has undergone a major rebrand and refurbishment programme with funding and support from The Arts Council, Copeland Community Fund, Northern, Community Rail Network and the CCL CRP. Millom Heritage & Arts Centre re-opened its doors to the public back in July.
Funding has enabled the development of the former workshop area at end of the station building to be transformed into a new waiting area and exhibition space. A new poetry room is now also open to the public aimed at supporting people to express their feelings and creativity through the magic of words. Refurbishment continues to take place in preparation for a number of school visits. Many people have visited over the summer months and the feedback has been excellent with visitors. The facility is much more fun and educational for children and family friendly.
The much-acclaimed and popular museum is open throughout the year Monday to Saturday and occasional Sundays during the summer season. There’s so much to see and do at the Heritage and Arts Centre – and with interactive displays and a wonderful model railway. See plenty more of the Millom Heritage and Arts & Centre.
