People get their first glimpse of plans for new Staffordshire History Centre


This month we are giving people a sneak preview of our plans  for the exciting new Staffordshire History Centre at a series of open days.

I have blogged about this before when we appointed the architects and design team but now it seems much more real as we can all see exactly what the new centre is going to look like.

The new Heritage Lottery funded £4m centre would be located on Eastgate Street in Stafford and would hold our historical records. It would provide a bright, welcoming space for visitors and exhibitions with browsing areas creating an easy entry point to the archives.

The plans, which are going  down very well include artist’s impressions and designs, ideas for future exhibitions and even a 3D model which helps show how the new centre would link into the William Salt Library.  People also liked the idea of bringing our collections together in one place and liked our ideas for the kinds of exhibitions that would be on display and going out into local communities.
