Previous Exhibitions

For the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons the Museum staged the Malton Goes to Market exhibition. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England we were able to revamp our exhibition rooms, install new lighting and introduce new technology. The exhibition featured objects as diverse as Iron Age chalk figures, trade tokens and a decorative quilt.

For the 2017 season part of the exhibition space was used to house a display commemorating the First World War.

In 2015 the Museum housed a temporary exhibition from Kirkleatham Museum: ‘The Saxon Princess’. The exhibition featured a replica of a rare Anglo-Saxon pendant which was discovered in 2006 by archaeologists excavating a cemetery at Street House, Redcar and Cleveland. It had been placed in a grave which is believed to be that of a Saxon princess who was buried lying on her highly-decorated bed.

In 2014 and 2015 the Museum worked with the Woodhams-Stone collection on ‘Windows to the Past’, a two-part exhibition exploring the changing nature of the town. It included a reconstruction of a Roman kitchen and one from the 1930’s.
