which governs what we collect and how we go about it.

Our collections are organised into four broad groups for management purposes; Archaeology, Art and Design, Hampshire Community Collections, and Natural Sciences. Each grouping has slightly different criteria for accepting material for their collections. The collection manager for each grouping has the responsibility of ensuring that these criteria are adhered to and that ethical and legal constraints are complied with. It is they who make the final decision about whether an object or collection may be accepted.

Please contact us if you have an object or collection which you would like to donate.
