There’s nothing quite like having a wonder around the local museum to get a feel for a town and the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston is no exception. Its wealth of information about the people, places, history and economy of the area is a real grounding for the new-in-town but also a valuable resource for residents wanting to know more about their birthplace. You’ll see evidence of Preston’s earliest ancestors, from stone-age people to the Vikings and the Romans, and in Discover Preston you'll learn about local heroes such as Sir Tom Finney and Richard Arkwright. Get to grips with Preston North End, the unique Preston Guild and find out how Preston played a role in national events such as the Civil War and the Jacobite rebellions. There’s an impressive collection of 18th, 19th and 20th century oils, water colours and prints plus a huge contemporary photography collection. There’s also a packed programme of free workshop and events for families and an ever changing series of exhibitions.
