Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery: Open Doors

Open since 1874, Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery houses a fascinating collection of fine art, decorative art, Egyptology, coins, manuscripts, natural history and social history.


Come and see the 1875 Colombian Printing Press in action and even have a go at using the press to create your very own print with artist Julia Swarbrick. 

Don’t miss the exhibition of internationally acclaimed artist Zimoun, whose mechanical sound sculptures will be taking over a space at Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery for 3 months!

Check back in the next couple of weeks for more activities taking place at the museum.
