Goole Museum goes back to the 80s with new exhibition

Wed, 06 Oct 2021

Goole Museum is delighted to announce its new and exciting exhibition, 1980s Britain: Money Changes Everything, where members of the public will be invited to step back in time.

The exhibition celebrates a decade like no other before or since, where things were bold, brash and contradictory, and it was an age characterised by boom and bust. It was also an action-packed decade filled with inspiring new technologies and momentous historic events which served to shape our modern world.

The new 1980s Britain exhibition will be running from now until the end of the year, and visitors can see it at the Carlisle Street site. Opening times are as follows:

  • Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm
  • Wednesday, 10am-7pm
  • Saturday, 9am-4pm
  • Closed for lunch 12noon-12.30pm (Wednesdays 1.30-2pm)

There is free admission to the exhibition, with no booking required. Lift access is also available for attendees.

Debbie Hardy, Goole Museum curator, said: "It may seem strange to see the eighties in a museum - I was a teenager and I hadn't realised just how much things have moved on in such a relatively short time.

"It is a brilliant exhibition to start a chat between generations as it really is the start of the modern, technology driven world we now live in."
