Harris building picture

Welcome to
Harris Museum & Art Gallery

Harris Museum is situated in one the most elevated parts of Preston. The building itself is of a form eminently fitted to crown an eminence.

The principle museum collections, apart from a large display on the 'Story of Preston', are of glass, ceramics, costume, toys and dolls.

The museum and art gallery encourage community involvement in such activities as oral history projects, by lending exhibits and encouraging the making of artwork; and the Community Gallery is used for a variety of exhibitions by local organisations.

The museum and art gallery uses a modern in-house computer system, making the storage and retrieval of details of all its works of art and museum objects much more comprehensive. It also makes use of modern technology to enhance the museum displays in the building.
