Talk from Jenny Middlehurst, Communities Officer of Flows to the Future.


Join the Museum and Flows to the Future Communities Officer Jenny Middlehurst for a talk on the progress of the project and the fascinating things they're working on.

Flows to the Future is an ambitious project which is restoring areas of blanket bog in the heart of the Flow Country that have been damaged by forestry planting.

It will also promote and develop our knowledge about the role of peat and carbon storage, and involve and connect people everywhere with this precious habitat, delivering real economic benefits for one of the least densely populated areas in Scotland..

We're looking forward to the official opening of the Flow Country: New Horizons exhibition here at the Museum.  The exhibition makes up the newest edition to our permanent displays and we can't wait for you all to see it. The redevelopment of the exhibition is part of a large scale project co-ordinated by our friends at The Flow Country.  Fascinating new exhibitions have appeared at the visitor centre in Forsinard, Strathnaver Museum and here at the Museum in Thurso.

Join us to hear all about the Flow Country project and enjoy a cuppa and some cake with us! 

Our exhibit includes three fantastic films, an interactive game and some brilliant dressing up costumes for the kids (and big kids) as well as informative display panels which tell the story of The Flow Country.

All welcome, admission charges apply to non members.  Access to Museum membership card holders and invited guests is free.  Memberships are available to buy anytime, either pop in to see us or grab one from our about us page.
