On the 20 October we will be opening a temporary exhibition called the "Shop of Horrors" in our History Gallery. It will be set up inside "Mrs Pepworth's Shop". It is about the strange and macabre history of the Victorians and the little known facts of the everyday life and beliefs during the 1800s. This temporary exhibition will be shown for just one month, so come see but only if you dare! And just in time for Halloween too!#didyouknow #kznmuseum
