When I was a lad I used to tell my Gran off for being nosy. Whenever there was a bit of noise outside she’d be there at the curtains muttering something about Mavis at number 16 or the youth of today. She liked to know what was going on.
Fancy having a nose at the objects that aren’t usually on display at MUSA? The MUSA Collections Centre will be your sort of visit. It’s a veritable Aladdin’s cave, the place where we keep many of the artefacts when they’re “having a rest”. My Gran would have a field day.
Three of the University’s most fantastic rooms – Parliament Hall, the Senate Room and the King James Library – will also be open for your inspection with some very knowledgeable curators on hand to answer your questions. These places have seen awesome discoveries and important
decisions over the centuries and they’re visually stunning, so well worth a peek. They’re all on South Street, bob in there any time between noon and 5pm on Sunday.
Of course, even if you’re not nosy (though who isn’t a bit?) they’re still well worth exploring.
