The Virtual Museum
Whilst you are not able to visit the lovely Selly Manor Museum at the moment, our team are very busy creating lots of online content to share with you. Over the coming weeks we'll be posting news, stories, activities, history posts and much more on our social media channels and website. We've all got our interests in the team and we hope you'll also get to know us a bit better.
So if you're looking for fun children's activities, would like to learn about the history of our museum and its collection, or just fancy some history-related distractions then visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or take a look at the News section of the Selly Manor Museum website. There will be daily updates and lots to get involved in! We look forward to you joining us, and if you like what you see please share with your family and friends.
