Direct Access is delighted to boost Harris Museum’s accessibility. The Grade 1 listed Art Gallery & Public Library is in Preston, Lancashire. Founded by Edmund Harris in 1877, it still operates as a local history and fine art museum with over 1,000 visitors daily.
Working with Preston Council and Lancashire County Council we are supporting plans to develop the first blended museum, art gallery and library in the UK. Furthermore, we will support the Harris Museum’s accessibility measures by increasing inclusive environments on the site.
The Harris collections cover fine art, decorative art, costume, textiles and history including collections on archaeology and local history. A highlight is a display of the complete skeleton discovered in 1970, of the 13,500-year-old Poulton Elk, a skeleton of an Ice Age elk with two embedded man-made barbed points, the earliest relic of human occupation of Lancashire.
