“Our Hands on History events represent a unique opportunity to handle some of the wonderful artefacts from the museum’s collections. The sessions are free and there is no need to book - just drop in between 11 am and 4 pm in the picture gallery. Come, see, hold, and be inspired by our travel items on Saturday.”

The museum also has a number of exhibitions on offer at the moment.

Shadows in the Sun by Anne Guest explores the natural world through cyanotypes, the oldest photographic printing technique, while Nuneaton Festival of Arts – Craft and Needlework - showcases local talent. There’s also a last chance to see the Tsuba exhibition which explores the design work on Japanese sword guards.

Also coming up this week is a free storytelling session for under-5s on Wednesday, May 18.

The spokesman added: “Join Melly between 11.15 am and 11.45 am for an exciting story. Be prepared to join in, make some noise and have lots of fun. No booking required. Weather permitting, we may head outside. Please ask at museum reception on the day. All children must be accompanied by an adult.”
