The new entrance foyer gallery is now open in Mansfield Museum.
It is devoted to the industries of the town, past and present.
Its apropriate title is
Made In Mansfield

It is packed with interactive screens and visual aids and is decidedly of the 21st. century !

It is obvious that much thought has gone into the problem of what could be displayed effectively and at the same time explaining the origins and importance of Mansfield's substantial industrial heritage.

Some may regret the absence of, say, a coal cutting machine or a framework knitters contraption, however, it is undoubtedly a thinking persons window on the District's working life.

This Society congratulates the Museum staff and the Designers on this monumental effort
