On Tour

We currently have two great exhibitions touring to venues around the country.  Each showcases a different aspect of the museum's collections.

Petal Power features the work of women employed by the Silver Studio in London between 1910 and 1940.  It includes hand-drawn and painted designs for floral dress fabrics, reflecting the fashions of the interwar period.

Sonic Wallpapers features a selection of wallpaper samples from our extensive collections.  Each is accompanied by a piece of sound art created by artist Dr Felicity Ford.  The exhibition brings a new dimension - sound - to a medium usually thought of only in visual terms.  You can also experience Sonic Wallpapers as an online exhibition.

And a book to accompany each exhibition is also available from our online store
