    On the 22nd February 2017 the Warrington Museum of Freemasonry arranged a supper for Friends oftheMuseum.  The evening included a talk by Mitchell Hill, who is the Collection and Archive Manager for Warrington Museum as well as the Mentor for the Warrington Museum of Freemasonry.   Michelle’s talk commenced with a brief history of the Warrington Museum which included some very interesting images of how the Grade II listed building looked soon after its construction was completed in 1857 and how the interior displays were organised in those early days.   They looked extremely cluttered to modern eyes and especially so when compared to how the displays are currently organised.
