Barnsley Museums is the borough’s repository for public memory, and together, we collect the objects that tell the epic story of the people of Barnsley.

We work to make our museums and collections accessible to all, reflecting the culture and people of our borough.

We work in partnership with local groups to create engaging events that promote wellbeing and celebrate our shared histories.

Just some organisations we work with include:

  • Darfield Maurice Dobson Museum
  • Butterflies Dementia Support
  • Barnsley Main Heritage Group
  • Qdos Creates
  • Alzheimer’s society
  • Be:Friend
  • Age UK
  • Churchfields Care Home
  • St. Mary’s Church
