Meet the Collections

A chance to get behind the scenes and take a closer look at objects and artwork in our collection


  • 27 July 2024 - 14 December 2024
  • Sir Francis Cook Gallery

Come and 'Meet the Collections' and see some of the fascinating items in our collections that are not usually on display at one of our sites.

With a different theme each month, our collections team will be selecting some of their favourite objects to show you and will be on hand to tell you about these objects, where they came from and what they can tell us about our Island’s history.
