Creswell Crags Museum's Exhibition Gallery & Gift Shop Reopen!

Monday 17 May 2021

At last, the government restrictions for all indoor museums and attractions are being lifted and Creswell Crags' Exhibition Gallery, shop and other indoor spaces will spring fully to life once again on Monday 17th May, and pre-booked cave tours are due to begin the following weekend.

To mark this significant date, a brand new art installation, 'Drawn to the Water’s Edge', will be on display in Creswell Crags’ exhibition gallery. The cave art at Creswell Crags was likely scratched by a migrant who travelled here from Europe. In collaboration with the area’s Polish community, and funded by Arts Council England, composer Amanda Johnson and artist Richard Johnson will create an art and sound installation, flooding the exhibition space with the sight and sound of water.

Visiting Creswell Crags and The Harley Gallery/The Portland Collection

Visitors to Creswell Crags Prehistoric Museum & Centre can now also enjoy an easier visit to the renowned Harley Gallery and The Portland Collection at Welbeck as an improved footpath has been installed between the two attractions. 

And there are even more exciting developments to look forward to with a stunning, £60,000 'Cave Art to Contemporary Art Walking Trail' which opens at the end of the year, taking visitors between Britain’s only verified Ice Age rock art, in Church Hole cave at Creswell Crags, to the contemporary and historic art at The Harley Gallery and The Portland Collection museum at Welbeck. 

It will include life-sized horse sculptures at The Harley Gallery, which are currently being crafted by leading artist, Michelle Reader, who is based within the Harley Studios at Welbeck. The trail will also include kinetic sculptures and markers created by designer, Martin Smith.
