About this Sponsor

Newark and Sherwood Museum Service has a collection of over 70,000 objects. Millgate Museum is closed to visitors now as we are in the process of developing a new museum, with a National Civil War Centre, on the Old Magnus Buildings site Appletongate. This new museum will replace the exhibitions at Millgate and the Gilstrap Centre. At the Resource Centre we continue to offer a research service that gives everyone access to our collection of objects and archives and learning sessions for schools and groups in the community.
