This July the Museum will unveil its 2018 Summer exhibition ‘Journey to Japan’. The exhibition will feature the Museum’s extensive collection of beautiful Japanese ink paintings and stencils. The fine and delicate stencils, believed to be from the period 1841 – 1921 provide a breath-taking insight into design and patterns of the period. In addition to the exhibition the Museum has organised a number of accompanying Japanese events running from June – September, commencing with a Japanese Garden Visit and concluding with Childrens Japanese arts and craft activities.
