The exterior of the Museum has been transformed by photographer Ellie Smart.  Her wonderful ‘Gaea’ photos will be on display outside the Museum this week.  

‘Gaea’ is a photographic project by Ellie Smart, that explores Paganism in the UK through a collection of pre- Christian religions and spiritualities. The project follows people on their pathways through Paganism, which aims to generate a positive discussion about an often-misunderstood way of life.

There will be a pop exhibition of Ellie’s photos outside the Museum for a week from Friday August 12th to Friday August 19th 2017.
