Starting with a display board in the reception of the museum, visitors will be led on a journey that encompasses the many of the displays at the museum, where they will find a series of 11 panels on different elements of climate change.

There is also a new film of Dr Jon Radley talking about all the themes which climate change touches upon as evidenced within the museum.

Visitors can view the eight-minute film in the cinema screen area on the ground floor.

This display is semi-permanent and is expected to be in the museum for at least 12 months and will be added to over time.

Cllr Heather Timms, portfolio holder for heritage, culture and the environment, said: “There are many things that we can all do to make a difference as we face the climate change emergency.

"One of the most powerful is to educate yourself about the problem and spread that learning to your peers.

"Now we have a wonderful resource at Market Hall museum that will help you do just that and I hope our residents take the opportunity to visit.”
