Rare chance to see inside empty part of Salts Mill in Saltaire as museum holds open day before moving in
The museum will move from its Bradford city centre base to the mill next year and visitors can drop in on Saturday November 25 from 11am-2pm to see inside the area that its exhibits will occupy. Feedback can also be submitted at the drop-in event.
The Peace Museum received a National Lottery grant to fund the move to a larger site that will allow more of its collection to go on display.
It is the only UK museum dedicated to peace, and holds a variety of artefacts linked to the peace movement, from protest banners to letters and posters.
As well as being a gallery of Bradford artist David Hockney’s work, it has a bookshop, exhibition space, numerous other stores and cafes and restaurants.
It is still owned by the family of Jonathan Silver, the businessman who restored the mill when it fell into dereliction.
