Exhibition: Coming of Age in the 1950s and 60s
20th September 2014

The 1950s and 60s were decades of increased opportunity and freedom after the wartime restrictions of the 1940s.

This exhibition looks at what life was like for local teenagers and young adults during these exciting years; everything from

staying in, going out and moving out, to getting your first job and getting married.

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday. 

Also on Monday from 10am to 5pm on school holidays and Bank Holidays (except December). 

Entrance to this special temporary exhibition is free. 

There is a small charge when visiting the other galleries at the Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse. 

These are £3 adult, £2 concession, £1.50 children, £7 family.

Season Tickets are also available for regular visitors
