The core of the collection comprises 19th and 20th century objects although the period of time to which the collection relates is c.500AD to the present day.

Not all of the museum’s collections are on display. Our reserve collections are held in storage and are used to create temporary exhibitions, to lend to other museums and institutions, and for research.

If you would like to enquire about our reserve collections, please contact the Curatorial Department to discuss your area of interest and arrange an appointment.
