The pictures released by Doncaster Council show the paintings on the walls in the new building which is now ready to open when museums are finally given the green light to let the public in again by the Government.

Revealing the pictures, a council spokesman stated: “We are SO excited about the brand new art gallery at Danum Gallery, Library and Museum! It's beautiful.

“This is a proud moment for Doncaster, to have facilities like this which rival galleries everywhere.

“Only a few days until you can virtually tour the building and see it!!”

The Free Press has previously published pictures of the rail heritage section of the building, which was revealed when the historic steam locomotive Green Arrow was delivered to the venue by the National Railway Museum, which is loaning two engines to the venue, at Waterdale.

Both the engines were built in Doncaster.

They will be the first engines to be on display at a Doncaster museum, and the room will also put items from the Doncaster Grammar School collection of railway memorabilia on public show for the first time.

The venue is running on online tour at 2pm on Wednesday March 17 2021, which will allow residents to look at the building, although it will still remain closed at present. The online tour will be on https://www.heritagedoncaster.org.uk/dglam/.
