The Museum's extensive collections are available for study by individual researchers.  Most researchers are interested in uncovering the history of their house or area, their family or another aspect of local history, but access to objects in the other collection areas can also be arranged.

We are currently offering a limited local studies drop-in service, run by volunteers and, subject to their availability, open to researchers on Wednesdays from 10am - 2pm.  The material regularly available includes the most popular photograph collections, street directories and local history reference books.

If you would like to see particular items from the collections, please email, or use the Contact Us page of this website, to check availability and make an appointment.
