The museum is situated in the ground-floor cellar of a Grade II listed, Georgian townhouse. Following five years of painstaking restoration to this historic building by Neil, his family & friends; 'Osborne House' can now be accessed by the public for the first time in over fifty years.
The space has been carefully designed to house the historic museum collection. Neil always had a very specific visual idea of what the completed museum should pay tribute to: the original 'Doctor Who Blackpool Museum' that he visited as a child in 1975. To this end, he designed a moodily lit sequence of 'corridors' to take the visitor on a journey through the Georgian cellar space & into the realm of science-fiction & 'Doctor Who'...
