New opening hours at the Harris

Current interior map of the Harris

We're delighted to announce that the Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library will be open on Wednesday evenings until 8pm and on Sundays from 11am - 4pm from Sunday 3rd July 2016.

STOP PRESS: See our revised hours from November 7th 2016 here

The new opening hours have been agreed by Preston City and Lancashire County Council as part of the Re-imagining the Harris project which is funded by
Arts Council England.  The project is bringing the library, museum and art gallery together for the first time in forty years and developing exciting plans to improve the building and its services over the long term. 

Recent public consulation showed a desire for longer museum opening hours, with a particular wish for Sunday opening.

The new hours will be trialled for a period of four months until early November, and then reviewed. A range of special events such as family activities, live music and talks will be programmed for many of the Wednesday evenings and Sundays. Take a look at our What's On pages for up to date details of what's happening.
