Our assembled team of volunteers lead tours through our new Archive gallery spaces

I was persuaded to join a tour to learn about ‘the archive’ rooms… interesting, informative and introduced me to an area of the gallery that I didn’t know existed. I look forward also to try out the interactive screens
