New Quilt, New Memories.

For a start we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who ensured that our opening was a success. All of the exhibits look fantastic and we have had an overwhelmingly positive response from visitors. If you have visited already then we hope you had a good time,and if you have not had the chance to visit yet we hope to see you soon.

We have just finished installing our millennium quilt which was made in September on the year 2000 to commemorate the new millennium. The quilt is impressively large and celebrates the people, businesses and heritage of Malton. Feel free to come in and take a look as it is one of our best exhibits.

We have also had a lot of visitor participation especially in our memories of Malton scheme were we encourage you to write your own memories of your time in Malton. These give the museum a unique insight into the recent history of the town and could be very useful for any future historians. These can be sent in anonymously or can be displayed as part of the exhibit. I enjoyed reading one memory which described the night life of Malton as being very lively and friendly.
