Wakefield Museum Official Opening

14/03/2013

Wakefield Museum, a project we worked on recently, was officially opened at the weekend by broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

The museum moved from its former home at the Mechanics’ Institute in Wood Street to its new site in the £31m ‘Wakefield One’ building in November.

It features the collection of noted 19th century Wakefield naturalist Squire Charles Waterton, and Sir David who is a greater admirer of his work said that he was “privileged” to open a museum which highlighted Squire Waterton’s life and achievements.
