Discover Preston Changing Display Case

Our Changing Display case within the Discover Preston gallery is an adaptable case located in the Discovery Room.

The displays will tell new stories about Preston and its cultures and communities using objects from both the museum collections and those collected by groups.

We aim to change the display four times per year – featuring two displays created by the Harris team and two displays created by our local community, living and working in Preston.
