The signage was developed as a result of last year’s consultation with the community and visitors, which showed that new signage was needed to bring more visitors to the museum.

Pupils from Preston Lodge High School were involved in developing the signs, providing feedback on initial designs and saying where they should be placed.

In the wake of the changes, visitor numbers for April more than doubled on the same month last year.
