With the sun shining and flowers beginning to bloom what better time to start thinking of your garden! The Norris Museum in St Ives is running a practical four hour workshop for adults on making [...]
The Norris Museum opened in 1933. Its original diverse collection of Huntingdonshire’s history was lovingly acquired over many years by St Ives born amateur historian, Herbert Norris.
The museum and library were opened in 1933, showcasing the many treasures, and continuing to collect and preserve them for future generations. The collections have grown steadily since then and the museum continues to collect from within the old county boundary. There are just over 33,000 items.
The museum buildings, set in an attractive riverside garden, are a major asset to the town and local area in themselves.
It would be hard in this old town, with all its enchanting places, to find a place surpassing in attractiveness the museum on the river bank. We have seen few museums built so neatly in so fair a place as this.
