World Museum fact for the day – post-war reopening

15 October 2010 by Lisa

Our World Museum 150th anniversary celebrations kick off tomorrow, so here it our final fact for the day taken from our archives.

Did you know… that in January 1956 the museum reopened for the first time since war damage in 1941.  Writer, heiress and political activist, Nancy Cunard also visited the museum that day.

Don’t forget to leave your memories of the World Museum on our ‘memory wall’ if you are visiting us this weekend!
