Work is set to start on a £130,000 refurbishment scheme to give Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery a facelight.

The refurbishment, funded by the Arts Council England, aims to improve visitors’ experiences at the Chequer Road venue, increase its income and reduce electricity consumption.

It will also include better quality and more energy efficient lighting, improved environmental control and re-fitting the shop and café area.

In order to complete the works the museum and art gallery will be closed from Monday March 25 until Friday March 29.

The Museum will also be closed on Bank Holiday Monday April 1.

Doncaster Council’s director of service for adults and communities ,Joan Beck, said: “This work will see significant improvements made to the art gallery, shop, cafe and meetings facilities which will help make the museum more sustainable and give visitors a much better experience.”
