Access Artefacts in the Community


Our collection is used by a variety of community groups across the east midlands, including care homes, private art groups, charities, church groups and anyone else who wishes to use museum objects.

The collection can be used in a variety of ways:

Our resource boxes contain a group of 10-20 objects selected from the collection. These have been chosen to reflect a specific theme or user group. They are packaged in sturdy, conservation standard museum cases and include an information pack, which contains general information, paper resources, planned activities and an information card for each object.

Alternatively, if we do not have a resource box that meets your needs, you are able to contact us and select your own group of objects. You are welcome to come and look through the collection with us or we can select a group for you on your chosen theme.
