Working in the research room

There really is no substitute for coming to the Museum and seeing the collection for yourself! The Museum is packed with fascinating things to see in our various galleries and displays, so why not find out when we are open and where we are, and make a date to visit us?

In common with most Museums, there is just as much to see behind the scenes as there is in the public galleries. These stored artefacts are available to view by prior arrangement.

If you would like to see items from particular areas of our archives, please contact us to discuss what you would like to see and make an appointment with us. Our friendly staff will ensure that what you would like to examine is available when you come, and they can be on hand to help when you visit.

As well as artefacts, our research room contains a wide range of printed material that may be of interest. See the Research facilities page for further information.
