Magna Carta to go on display in Lincoln in 2015

In Uncategorized on August 8, 2009 at 3:55 pm

Lincoln Castle is due to put in a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a major renovation of the castle buildings. At present Lincolnshire Crown Court shares the building with a visitor attraction, but the two are not natural bedfellows. When high profile cases are being heard, visitors to the castle are greeted with added security patrolling the building and a throng of media presence – not the greatest visitor experience.

Once the court has been relocated to a new building in Lincoln, the plan is overhaul the visitor experience. The castle holds one of the only four remaining copies of Magna Carta, which was signed in 1215. So, the plan is to revamp the museum in time for 2015 and a spectacular 700th anniversary re-display.

As always, there’s an article about it on Museum [Insider].
