Andover Museum & Museum of the Iron Age WHAT’S ON MAY TO AUGUST 2017


 NDOVER MUSEUM & MUSEUM A OF THE IRON AGE 6 CHURCH CLOSE, ANDOVER, SP10 1DP 01264 366283 Love Collecting 6 May to 17 June There’s a bit of the magpie in most of us, but what sort of collector are you? Are you the sort of person who picks up shells as you walk along the beach but then doesn’t know what to do with them? Or do you make a special trip to the beach to search for particular shells? This exhibition explores four of the collectors who helped shape our museum collections.
