Come along and join the 50th anniversary celebration on Saturday 27th May between 10am and 4pm as Beck Isle Museum goes back to the 1960s, the decade in which the museum was founded. Enjoy free admission to the museum, displays of 1960s memorabilia as well as games and crafts for all the family. Take a trip down memory lane and listen to your favourite record, visit the village shop to buy a handful of penny sweets and test your knowledge of 1960s popular culture in our special quiz.
There is still a chance to look at the temporary exhibition ‘50 years, 50 objects’ which includes a range of artefacts from the collection from Bronze Age arrowheads to 19th century costume to 1960s domestic appliances. This exhibition as well as displays about the history of the museum will be running until the end of November.
