Red House Museum has now closed


Red House Museum is now closed permanently. Its last day of opening to the public was Wednesday 21 December 2016. Kirklees Council included the historic building and its upkeep in a money-saving reorganisation of its Museums Service (along with other museums), thus saving itself the official sum of £531,000. The future of the collections (apart from storage) is not clear at the moment.

The Council is now gathering expressions of interest to take over the running of the building. So, if any readers of this blog know of a community-based group or organisation...  here is the link:

A reminder - this is what it was like to walk in at opening time on a typical day:
