It is a place to discover the story of Doncaster, from its beginnings in the Ice Age through to life in the modern world. The museum shut its doors in January 2020 in order to prepare to relocate to the new home just up the road on Waterdale in summer 2020 and due to the national lockdown is still shut. But see who you can recognise in these pictures going back to the 1990s.
