Ely Museum

We are working with Ely Museum on their redevelopment and extension, transforming the Grade 2 listed former Gaol and its surroundings. Restoring the integrity of the listed building, removing unsympathetic later alterations internally, is going hand in hand with extending to create a new entrance and waiting area, and a new education and event space alongside improved visitor facilities, offices and collection storage. The aim is to reconnect the Museum with its community, revitalising the way that it shows its collections, and enabling it to tell the fascinating story of its building through its architecture.

The project is part-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
