Bring to light the secret stories behind some of the everyday objects on display!

There are lots of powerful untold stories at the museum, hidden within the seemingly-ordinary objects we hold. Join us on a voyage of discovery, and we'll turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

During this fascinating session, you'll uncover tales of forbidden love, immerse yourself in historic epics and learn all about the life of a glassworker in Victorian Castleford.

This drop-in session is free and there's no need to book.
