A Wander Round Blackburn Museum

I was in-between meetings today so I took the opportunity to have a wander round Blackburn Museum. I'm slightly ashamed to say that I've lived in this town for nine years now and have only stepped foot in the museum once before.

Respectfully, there is no flash photography allowed in many areas of the museum and in some sections there is very low lighting to preserve the displays even further so the following pictures aren't of the highest quality.

You need to visit if you're ever in the area. There are loads of different collections - not all related to industry and local history. I totally fell in love with the Japanese collection and the icons/scripture section.
