Only a small part of the Museum’s collections can be displayed in our public galleries at any one time. Items which are not currently on display, and held in Reserve Collections, can be viewed with a member of the curatorial staff by appointment. Details of the Museum’s library and manuscript collections can be found on our Research pages.
The Museum also wants to make these collections available in a number of other ways.
Recent Acquisitions gives a list of highlights of new additions to the collections.
Keep an eye on the Forthcoming Events page for details of our next Behind the Scenes tours of the collection stores.
