Fasten your seatbelts! The Travelling Museum is going out on the road again next week, visiting locations throughout the Island.

Created by the Ventnor Exchange and The Errant Stage as part of the new Hidden Heroes project The Travelling Museum isn’t a dusty old bus with boring objects – get ready for actors playing the part of enthusiastic and funny museum owners, as they encourage you to uncover remarkable stories of kings, inventors, speed freaks and artists, travelling from the dinosaur to the modern age, discovering the people who helped make our Island great and some who even helped shape the world.

We’ll be visiting five locations next week to coincide with the February half term but it’s perfect for those of any age! The Travelling Museum is a free experience open to all, bringing some of the greatest Isle of Wight museums to you. You’ll even get to hold some of the fascinating objects on the bus!
