NATIONAL CIVIL WAR CENTRE

NATIONAL CIVIL WAR CENTRE
NATIONAL CIVIL WAR CENTRE

A relatively small, but absorbing, museum dedicated to the so-called English Civil War of 1642-1651, mapping out the causes, course and consequences. A section is devoted to the siege of Newark, which was held in the Royalist cause. The museum includes some very interesting original items, excellent audio-visual displays and a cinema. In the same building, there is the Newark on Trent town museum as well as a programme of temporary exhibitions.  Regular events are held, mostly related in some way to the Civil War.
