This LGBT History Trail is the culmination of 3-month long project that has focused on shinning a light on the queer histories of objects in the Museum’s collections and permanent displays. Accessibility is paramount as we believe everyone should have access to the past. With this in mind, The Trail can be viewed on your mobile by scanning the QR Codes placed around the Museum or you can pick up a paper copy of the trail at reception. This Trail would not have been possible without the support and funding of Art Fund and South West Museum Development. For more information follow this link: The Michelangelo Trail.
