Everyone is being encouraged to visit the People's Palace before it closes its doors for the last time on Sunday 14 April, ahead of a major refurbishment.

This will allow the next stage of a transformational project to completely reimagine and restore the museum and Winter Gardens glasshouse to progress.

A 'Last chance to see' campaign, urging locals and visitors to the city, to make time to see the many treasures on display for a final time has been launched.

Once closed, the vision to restore the People's Palace and Winter Gardens as a vibrant museum and thriving community space will begin in earnest, with the 'new' space due to open in 2027. You can read more in our media centre here.
