Local Studies Room

You can book a two-hour session to access the Local Studies collection for your research on Wednesday mornings from 10.30am-12.30pm or in the afternoon from 2-4pm. Bookings must be made at least one week in advance of your planned visit.

Book your Local Studies session here

Alternatively, please call the Museum during opening hours on 01424 451052.

Collections Enquiries

If you have a question about our collections please complete this enquiry form. If it takes us more than 30 minutes to find the answer, we may have to charge a fee. We will never charge you before we have asked if you would like to continue the research.

Research Projects

We like to support research projects using collections. If you are planning a project tell us as soon as possible so we can see if we can support your project.

Email telling us:

- What your project is about

- What collections you are interested in

- The support you would like from us

 Unfortunately, we cannot support every project that we are asked to.

Indigenous Communities

Our Indigenous Engagement Policy sets our our approach to working with Indigenous communities. It has been created in partnership with the Beyond the Spectacle Project and Indigenous people.
