Clifton park museum
The record breaking Clifton park museum is a day out with a difference. One of the most modern and user-friendly museums in the country, the twice nominated museum of the year features famous exhibits such as Nelson the Lion and the breath-taking Rhinoceros Vase, the first ever porcelain vase cast in one piece.
The museum highlights the history of the borough in a way that appeals to all ages and helps to bring both our lives, and those of our ancestors, into sharp focus with the latest in high tech displays and interactive exhibits.
We run an exciting programme of events and exhibitions at Clifton park museum.
