More than just an Exit: Museum Shop Sunday

24 November 2018 |

Encouraging shopping with a conscience, sales on 'Museum Shop Sunday' will contribute to each venue directly and provide a valuable contribution to culture in the UK. And aside from that, it's a great option for anyone who struggles for Christmas present ideas...

Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle
For their first ever Museum Shop Sunday, Tullie House visitors can enjoy a tasting with Solway Gin, while local artist Martin Evans will be in the shop working on a digital art piece. Amateur historians can to get up close to some real Roman artefacts, with a Roman jewellery handing activity also happening.

Roman Baths Shop, Bath
Dip into the Roman world with a visit to The Roman Baths, where you will find the remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water!
 
On Sunday, shoppers will encounter costumed Roman characters and have the chance to sample a selection of goods made by local and artisanal producers, from warming honey mead to hedgerow-foraged preserves.

Leeds City Museum
Recently named the most family-friendly museum in the UK, the Leeds City Museum is just one of many in the city, which also boasts Abbey House Museum, the Industrial Museum, Leeds Art Gallery, Lotherton (currently offering an enchanting Christmas Experience with Elf Village and woodland trail), Thwaite Mills Watermill…

We reckon Leeds could be the perfect city to do a “crawl” of Museum Shops!
