NORTH Somerset Museum is set to reopen its doors with a brand new exhibition on Monday.
The museum in Burlington Street will unveil the High Street exhibition, which will include dozens of artefacts from local shops, national chains and family-run businesses throughout history.
Anyone who goes to see the exhibition between January 31 and February 5 is being offered a free hot drink.
The museum’s curator, Nick Goff, said: “We would love to invite visitors back with something special.
“So I am delighted that we have this new exhibition. The range of material will delight anyone with fond memories of pre-decimal money or who remembers when Lance and Lance was the biggest store in town.”
The museum, which has been closed since January 17 for essential building work, is open Monday to Saturday from 11am-4pm.
