When ever we tell people that the museum is closed until the end of 2012, they frequently ask 'Wow! What are you going to be doing in all that time?' The answer, of course, is that we are going to be very busy getting ready for reopening. We're going to be keeping you up to date with everything going on here, and we would really like your comments, feedback and ideas to make sure that our new Art Gallery & Museum is the place for everyone to be in 2012.
Here is Tom Perrett, Head of Collections and Exhibitions talking about our plans for the next 18 months.
