Shrewsbury's Victorian Music Hall and a rare 13th century mansion have been the focus of a groundbreaking restoration project that has created a vast new museum and spectacular gallery space. Visitors to the new museum will go on a journey of discovery starting when mammoths roamed the county, unlocking stories from across Shropshire; stories of discovery and engineering creativity that influenced the world. The entire collection has been re-imagined for a modern audience, with exhibitions in five galleries exploring subjects from geology to natural history via art, archaeology and costume. Operated by Shropshire Council the museum holds some of the nation's most treasured Roman artefacts, including an ornate silver mirror and a Hadrianic Inscription discovered at nearby Wroxeter. There will also be themed exhibits and contemporary art dedicated to the work of scientist Charles Darwin, who was born and educated in Shrewsbury. Alongside its permanent collections, Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery has invited a series of internationally renowned contemporary artists to curate pop-up exhibitions and create specially commissioned works. The Frank Cohen display will feature artwork by the likes of Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Jake and Dinos Chapman, as well as pieces from rising stars championed by Cohen. The individual works have been chosen for the way they resonate with the museum's historic collections, particularly the theories of Darwin and the relationship between human beings and the animal world. On display are paintings from Shropshire's permanent collections with historic views of Shrewsbury and Shropshire together with portraits of local people like Lord Hill, former Commander in Chief of the British Army and a key general at the Battle of Waterloo. Already much loved for its rich cultural scene and characterful streets lined with timber-framed Tudor buildings, this more than £10 million project is a significant investment in Shrewsbury's visitor attractions. The museum houses the Visitor Information Centre and is the starting point for guided walking tours, encouraging visitors to go out and explore the living history of the town and wider county for themselves.
