Alterations and extensions to the Grade II listed complex of buildings, whose origins date back to mediaeval times, were designed by Freeland Rees Roberts to provide exhibition and educational facilities. These include gallery spaces, teaching rooms, computer facilities, archive storage, administration and ancillary spaces. The entrance has been reconfigured to open the building up to the public and provide disabled access. A significant part of the scheme involved a sympathetic upgrade of services to the gallery spaces within the existing historic building fabric. The work was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Museum re-opened in 2005.
