Exploring our collections
Our first collections were brought together more than 200 years ago and we’ve been adding to them ever since. From art to archaeology, history to industry, the natural and the wider world, they are amongst the UK’s finest with many recognised as nationally and internationally important. You can search our collections online.
If you’re particularly interested in art then check out Art UK. It’s the online home for every public art collection in the UK, including ours.
