The restoration and extension at Ely Museum is starting to showcase the amazing features that exist within this Grade II building.

Where the new single storey extension above the old Vernon Cross room joins the Old Gaol building, this wonderful historic wall can be seen. A staircase will be installed to join the two levels, and give access through to the new open plan gallery spaces.

The roof is currently being finished with handmade Gault tiles made from Cambridgeshire clay, as used in many buildings in the area. These were specially aesthetically designed for the museum by its architects HAT Projects.
