Nidderdale Museum Society
The Nidderdale Museum Society
A flourishing Society came into being when Nidderdale Museum was formed in the 1970s “to advance the education of the public by maintaining a Museum in the Nidderdale area to collect, preserve and exhibit items of archaeological, historical, industrial, educational and community interest”. As well as supporting the day to day running of the Museum, the Nidderdale Museum Society normally has its own programme of activities and events. There are talks on topics of local interest during the winter months and walks in the local area in the summer.
The Nidderdale Museum Society has a wide range of activities for all its members and many people have been involved over the past forty years. The Monday Group carries out cleaning, sorting, maintenance, and reconstruction for display. Others come on Thursday evenings to catalogue, archive and record.
Some of our members organise learning resources for schools and host visits, giving talks to children and adult groups; others carry out genealogy research and record local history with publication as the result. Many take part in talks and walks in the dale, and there are those who are stewards, giving up their own time to open Nidderdale Museum for the benefit of the general public.
Annual Membership of the Society is currently only £5 per person (2021) and allows members free entry to the Museum for a year, as well as offering the other benefits noted above.
