Our new Spitfire Gallery has opened to the public for the first time and is expected to be one of the region’s top free attractions – adding an incredible new dimension to the already wonderful museum and the city’s tourism offer. The iconic plane has undergone a three-year project to restore it to its former glory and will take pride of place in the 3,800 sq ft, glass-fronted gallery. As well as the RW388 Spitfire, the permanent exhibition will also include displays and a celebration of iconic designer Reginald Mitchell.
Visitors can also see our ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland‘ exhibition.
A new contemporary ceramics exhibition by Neil Brownsword entitled Alchemy and Metamorphosis has also opened on September 18th.
In order to complete some necessary improvements around the museum, Ground Floor including the Staffordshire Hoard Gallery and First Floor galleries remain temporarily closed until further notice. The remaining museum galleries will see a phased re-opening over the coming weeks.
