Donate an object

We welcome offers to fill gaps in our extensive collection—find out more about the kinds of objects we’re collecting.

Our object-rich collections have been built up over the past 150 years, but some gaps still exist, and you might have precisely the right object to fill them—so do get in touch. (But please don’t bring objects into the museum without having made a prior appointment with the relevant curator.)

Find out more below about what we’re collecting and how to donate.
