Between 17th June – 18th July 2015, the 100 Minories team held five ‘Pop Up’ museums, culminating in a two day bonanza on the 17th-18th July to coincide with the Festival of Archaeology and indeed the end of the excavation. Click here to find out what Pop Up Museums are and the ethos behind them.

This article is a quick thank you to all those who visited the Pop Up Museum in the last month, with a total of 780 visitors stopping by! Here are some more photos from over the course of the events, for all those who missed it.
