Tullie House was officially opened as a museum, public library and school of art in 1893. The buildings housed the collections of the city and shared the stories they told in a brand new museum and art gallery. 125 years later we are marking this remarkable achievement by reflecting on our past, celebrating our present and looking ahead to an exciting future.

Inspired by the stories of the people who have visited, studied or worked at the museum, from the Victorian Corporation men with a grand idea, to the celebrated artists who learnt their craft in the School of Art, to the families spending quality time together, this new exhibition explores what makes Tullie House a unique place in the heart of Carlisle.
