Know Your Place

Know Your Place

Exhibited from January 7 - February 26, 2017

Have you ever wondered what makes a place the way it is now? Or wished you could travel back in time and discover how your area has changed over the years?

Know Your Place is a cutting-edge exhibition which will be shown at the Museum throughout January and February. The exhibition will also be available online and can be viewed from any smartphone or connected device.

Featuring extraordinary images from archives, museums and heritage collections across the West of England, Know Your Place gives an unique insight into the history of the places where we live, work and visit every day.

This exhibition is part of Know Your Place – West of England, the digital mapping project to share your neighbourhood’s heritage online through old maps, historic images and heritage data.

This exhibition is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
