History of museum display

A civic collection and public space for the people of Northampton.

This small display highlights the role of Northampton Museum and Art Gallery as a civic collection and public space for the people of Northampton and how this role has changed over time.

Themes

Objects displayed include those collected when the museum was founded in the 1860s alongside those reflecting the contemporary museum. Many objects were selected by the museum's volunteers.

We conserved a fossil from our collection especially for this display.
