East Riding Museums may be closed at the moment, but there are still ways to enjoy their unique and fascinating collections.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council's new website, Active East Riding, launched last week with ideas for things people can do, learn from, and take part in whilst at home, and is highlighting Museums Online.
Museums Online offers a chance to visit over 80 past and current exhibitions from East Riding Museums, together with exclusive online exhibits, and a way to search the huge collections database.
Online exhibitions to visit include :
Museums Online also includes an opportunity to see pdfs of past exhibition - from the dizzy colours of 1960s East Riding and the history of local pubs, to life during wartime and the local economy.
Museums manager Nial Adams said : " We are all obviously disappointed that our museums have to be closed at the moment, but Museums Online is a great way for people to be able to see our exhibitions online, and to visit some of the exhibitions which were only able to open briefly before the government's restrictions came into force."
