Muddy says: One of the most exciting cultural spaces in the south-east, The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking hosts a huge range of exhibitions.
There are three main galleries at The Lightbox each presenting a range of exhibitions from classical through to contemporary art by both local artists and those who are internationally famous.
As well as curating original exhibitions, The Lightbox also shows works borrowed from major museums and galleries from here in the UK and around the world.
The museum is home to ‘Woking’s Story’, a permanent local history musuem, as well as the Joan Hurst Collection, and the prestigious Ingram Collection of Modern British Art, which is on long-term loan from Woking businessman Chris Ingram and includes works by Anthony Caro, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and Barbara Hepworth.
The Lightbox runs an extensive education and events programme, with a wide range of workshops for adults, families, children and young people.
If you are visiting with children you will find plenty to keep them occupied with hands-on activities and interactive displays.
The Lightbox is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am to 5pm and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. It’s closed on Mondays and Bank Holidays.
