Did you know? #12

Did you know that all of our collection is accessible online for you to browse?

With nearly 13,000 objects in the collection, browsing the website is a great way of seeing what we have.  You can search the collection using search terms or our filters.

To browse the collection firstly you need to click on the blue 'The Collection' tab at the top of the page.


This will take you through to the collection page where you can do a free text search by using keywords or use our helpful filters to narrow down the search.


To find out more about the objects in your search list simply click on the image or the object title in blue.  This will take you through to the object page, an example of which can be seen below.

 
If you are a researcher wanting to come to the museum and view any items from the collection you will need to make a note of the 'Object Number' located in the bottom right of the record page.
