Newark Town Hall was designed in Palladian style in 1776 by the architect John Carr of York. Rooms within form part of the museum including civic treasures in the Mayor's Parlour, a fine art gallery and elegant 18th-century Assembly Room. Newark Town Council has a fine collection of oil paintings reflecting the civic side of the Town appropriately displayed in the Town Hall's Council Chamber.
