The Burlington Street museum is undergoing a £1.6million refurbishment and will reopen in 2017.

The newest designs for the museum’s art gallery, landscape gallery and undercroft area have been agreed.

The flatner, a type of boat, will move to the undercroft area on the ground floor, where an audio ‘soundscape’ will give visitors the impression of being by the sea.

New galleries will feature interactive technology, and work on a currently inaccessible courtyard and Clara’s Cottage is planned too for future phases.
