Museum development 

The Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham has been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund Development grant of £130,000 to progress plans to apply for a full grant for a major redevelopment project to create a significantly improved visitor experience and widen its access to young people, the public, and schools.

The proposal for redevelopment will retain the museum’s original features and display cases, as well as its Edwardian interior, however these will be juxtaposed with a state-of-the-art museum experience, which will be interactive and tactile, with modern technology for a more enhanced and rewarding visit.
