display at the museumThe self-guided tour allows visitors to be immersed in the sights, smells and sounds of 19th century Nottinghamshire whilst exploring the birthplace of Eastwood’s most famous son at their own pace. Interpretation boards introducing D.H. Lawrence’s family and Victorian life in Nottinghamshire are located in each of the rooms. Additional information is also available on easy to read handouts.

New for 2019, is a family friendly programme and changing exhibition space that will host temporary exhibitions. New displays will take place throughout the year, focusing on Lawrence’s life, his works, and the local community.

Museum and Collections Officer, Carolyn Melbourne said: “Our new offering means we can cater for a wider range of visitor; for those who want to drop-in, repeat visitors and those who want to simply soak up the atmosphere unhindered.”
