About the collection
The Museum is also home to the Harrison Collection. Amassed by local brothers Edward and Richard Harrison over the last sixty years, the collection includes antiques and rare curiosities spanning five centuries of British history. It covers everything from cooking pots to brain surgery tools. Around half of the collection is on display at the Museum in a dedicated building and display space.
