Viewing the Collections
We display as much of the City and County collections as possible across our three museums, including our uniquely extensive Vardo caravan collection and approximately a sixth of the oil painting collection. We hold regular exhibitions at the City Art Gallery focusing on significant works such as pieces by David Cox, Benjamin Williams Leader and Stanhope Forbes.
However, only a small percentage of the collections are on display at any one time, the rest is packaged and stored safely in our Collections Storage facility – a treasure trove of social and industrial history, archaeology and art.

Researchers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange access to our collections store.
