Blackburn museum’s new research room is hoping for members of the public to take in their interesting discoveries.
Have you ever found an interesting object while metal detecting, walking or digging in the garden? Do you have an unknown object and would like to find out more?
If so, why not bring your discovery to the new Level 2 Research Room at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery on Wednesday, November 29.
