The Hyndburn Museum and Heritage Centre has now completed its move to a new unit inside the Accrington Arndale Centre.
The return of the H Samuel jewellery store forced museum bosses to relocate to a smaller unit at the end of last year.
Bernard Scully, of the museum group, said the move is now complete and they are working on a 1916 Pals Somme exhibit and mock-Home Front and recruiting office.
He said: “This unit is a lot smaller so we are a bit more crowded than we want to be but it gives us more opportunities to circulate the stock we have. Because we are not in the same position the number of visitors has fallen slightly. We were pulling in about 80,000 people a year before. We will have to rotate it around a bit more as there is so much stuff and not enough space to put it. The donations and interest from the public has been overwhelming and the stories were get every day are amazing.”
Bernard said they are also appealing for more volunteers to help keep the centre open longer.
He said: “We used to be open six days a week and open on Wednesdays.” To help out visit the centre opposide Oddies.
